When asked about their current use of mobile devices, a little over 46% of standard cellphone owners and 79% of smartphone owners said they used them for both personal and work functions. Even so, the large majority had only meager access to their data: almost 60% said they could access less then 10% of their personal data, and nearly 70% said they could get at less than 10% of their work data. The scores were even lower for applications -- more than 70% said they could access less than 10% of their company's spreadsheets, CRM, email, and other applications. More than two-thirds felt they would be "more productive and better at my job" if they could double their access to data and apps, and the ability to interconnect with work systems was at the top of the wish list for mobile phone functions (tied with watching streaming video).
The study was carried out by Zogby International, drawing on that firm's online panel. More detail is available in this PDF summary.
