Filipino kids among Asia's 'most connected'

A survey revealed that Filipino children are among the "most connected" in the Asia-Pacific region.

The New Generations 2012 survey, conducted by Cartoon Network, found out that around two-thirds, or 67 percent of Filipino kids have their own mobile phones. Records for Taiwan and Australia, both developed nations, are significantly lower with 22 percent and 42 percent, respectively.

The survey also revealed half of the respondents have household Internet access, with 98 percent of them living in a house that has a mobile phone.

54 percent of the respondents have digital cameras, and 20 percent have access to a smartphone.

Although most of them are gadget and technology savvy, most Filipino kids still prefer watching television programs, with 99 percent claim. Only 70 percent of the 1,000 respondents from Metro Manila, Cebu, and Davao, though read books regularly.
