Pew Research has just announced some data on the expanding adoption of tablets, ebooks, and other devices. Their results show that 25% of Americans own some kind of device in these categories. Granted, this number could include knockoffs or the full-fledged deal. The total number of respondents that participated in this self-survey was 2,252 people.
With these numbers in mind, we can sum up that tablet adoption has officially surpassed e-readers.
Another study that Pew Research conducted discovered 85% of the U.S. owns a cellphone, which could account for flip phones as well.
It’s interesting to see that a once-crazy idea of a massive 7-10 inch touchscreen display is becoming the new norm. Its no longer surprising to see someone in public using their tablet for games, studies, or even taking pictures with it. They have come a long way from just being a silly concept that was turned down by some of the world’s brightest and has now become a reality.
