80% of Swedes think it's perfectly acceptable to answer their mobile phone when they're at a party, according to Monday's Aftonbladet.

A survey by telecoms giant TeliaSonera has shown that among Scandinavians, Swedes find it hardest to switch off their phones. Only 50% of Finns and Danes think it is acceptable to answer your mobile phone when you're in the company of others.

At least 80 per cent of people in the Nordic countries own a mobile phone, "seven out of ten use the sms function and the majority have access to the Internet", explained Aftonbladet.
