As Mobile Revolution Continues, Computers Fizzle
By Mobile / IO, 19 Oct 2010
As Americans go mobile, desktop and laptop computers are slowly losing their grip as what was once the must-have gadget. A Pew Research report found that in 2010, 85% of all Americans own a cellphone, edging out their bulkier technological cousins.
59% of Americans own desktops while just 52% have laptops in tow, leading the research firm to conclude that the cellphone is 2010’s “gadget of choice”, it wrote in the report.
“Consumers can now choose from an array of devices capable of satisfying their need for ‘anytime, anywhere’ access to news, information, friends and entertainment,” Pew’s research specialist Aaron Smith wrote in the report overview.
And it should come as no surprise that young adults make up a big portion of cellphone owners. Of the 18 to 29-year olds polled, 96% own a cellphone of some kind. Even the boomers are getting in on the mobile act—nearly six in 10 of Americans aged 65 and older own a mobile phone.
