Budapest, June 16 (MTI) – Hungarians are much more open to discovering new technology than the average European but they are less good at understanding news about innovation, a survey on consumer habits revealed.
Fully 58 percent of Hungarian respondents said they keep up to date on innovations and 86 percent were interested in information about electronic devices, the poll taken by Samsung in 18 European countries on a representative sample showed. These results compare with 25 and 45 percent on average in Europe, respectively.
Hungarians, however, have greater expectations, with 59 percent expecting new devices to make life easier, while Europeans on average only have this expectation for 42 percent of the sample.
At the same time, 21 percent of Hungarians said they have trouble understanding the language of new technology, compared with only 12 percent claiming the same in Europe.
A gender divide in connection with technology was also suggested by the survey: three times as many women than men in the 16-54 age group responded that they are not able to keep up with the progress of technology.
