Americans Say, "Give Me Talk, Not Text"

BEAVERTON, Ore., June 28, 2010 – According to a survey conducted by VTech¬ Communications, a wholly owned subsidiary of VTech Holdings Ltd. (HKSE: 303; ADR: VTKHY) and the largest U.S. cordless phone manufacturer, 97 percent of participants believe talking regularly is important for healthy relationships.
