Credant Technologies announced the results of a survey today that shows passengers in Taxi's in New York City have left behind 31,544 mobile phones and over 2,752 other handheld devices like laptops and iPods.

The study also reports Taxi drivers say that 44% of passengers in the cab spend their time catching up on work, on the phone or sending email. Almost 2/3 of NYC cab drivers report that owners get their devices back. In London, about 80% of passengers in cabs get their items back.

"We've become too complacent about losing personal information. This is a warning to the business community and individuals to be vigilant when travelling with mobile devices especially as more people are using the latest range of "must have" mobile smartphones to store large amounts of sensitive personal and business information," stated Michael Callahan, Chief Marketing Officer at CREDANT Technologies.
