    Nowadays, what can be identified as info-communication age, the mobile phone became a determinant technical device in life. I studied the mobile device selection criteria and usage habits of university students with a non-representative research. The results show that the price, look and shape of the device are more important than the available applications or brand. Technical parameters have more importance, like good battery and durability. Mobile phones have determinant importance for the young, and they rather use it more in public situations or places, than in private ones. The time-management applications are used more often than other information based ones. They use clock, alarm clock and calendar most often, while sound recorder and Internet are used most rarely.
