When it comes to cell phones, available features are significantly less important than their adaption by users. For example, almost every dumbphone can run apps to some extent – but how often do you see a J2ME app running on such a device?

BrightHand now reports on an interesting study:

More specifically, 40% of adult cell phone owners now do web surfing, e-mail, or instant messaging (IM) on their phones, up from 32% last year, say results of the study from Pew Internet.

Yet non-voice cell phone apps are also growing fast among 30- to 49-year-olds. For instance, 39% of this older group now use their phones to record videos, an 18-point rise over 2009.
