US Adult's interest increasing in Tablet Computers

Nearly 18 months after the introduction of the iPad, one in 10 U.S. adults now owns a tablet computer and uses it an average of 90 minutes a day.

A new study conducted by Pew Research Center's Project for Excellence in Journalism in collaboration with The Economist Group found that more people are flocking to tablet computers, especially for reading news each day.

The study looked at the behavior of 1,159 tablet users and 894 who consume news on their tablet weekly, to make up a representative sample of the U.S. population.

Consuming news — everything from the latest headlines to in-depth articles and commentary — ranked as one of the most popular activities to do on the tablet, about as popular as sending and receiving email (54 percent email daily on their tablet) and more popular than social networking (39 percent). About 30 percent of tablet users play games on their devices, while 17 percent read books and 13 percent watch movies and videos.

In general, tablet users are middle-age, higher-income working individuals who follow the news more closely and more frequently than the population overall,” the report said.

The study also found that these early users turn to the Internet as their main source of news much more frequently than the public overall. Overall, 71 percent of tablet users prefer reading and listening to news rather than watching it, compared with 45 percent of all U.S. adults.

  1. In this grand pattern of things you receive a B+ with regard to effort and hard work. Exactly where you actually misplaced me personally was in all the details. As people say, details make or break the argument.. And it could not be more accurate at this point. Having said that, let me tell you just what did work. Your writing is really powerful which is possibly why I am taking the effort in order to comment. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Next, whilst I can certainly notice the leaps in logic you make, I am not certain of exactly how you seem to unite your ideas that help to make the actual conclusion. For right now I shall subscribe to your position but wish in the future you connect the facts much better.
