NEW Pew Research Report – Americans and Their Cell Phones…08.30.11

30 08 2011

From Pew Internet and American Life Project report 42% – Americans and Their Cell Phones:

“Mobile phones have become a near-ubiquitous tool for information seeking and communicating — 83% of American adults own some kind of cell phone. Half of all adult cell owners (51%) have used their phone at least once to get information they needed right away. Four-in-ten (40%) cell owners said they found themselves in an emergency situation in which having their phone with them helped. An almost equal number (42%) used their phone for entertainment when they were bored. Owners also used cell phones to stave off personal contact with others — 13% of cell owners pretended to be using their phone in order to avoid interacting with the people around them. As useful as cell phones have become, owners have found some downsides. Nearly three-in-ten (29%) turned their phone off for a period of time just to get a break from using it. One-fifth of cell phone owners (20%) experienced frustration because their phone was taking too long to download something. Difficulty reading text on their phones’ small screen was a problem for 16%, and 10% said they had difficulty entering a lot of text on their phone. Read more

Changing Demographics of Tablet and eReader Owners in the U.S…08.26.11

New from Neilsen: Changing Demographics of Tablet and eReader Owners in the U.S

 

“In the U.S., as recently as last Summer, tablet and eReader owners tended to be male and on the younger side. But according to Nielsen’s latest, quarterly survey of mobile connected device owners, this is no longer the case.

 

Back in Q3 2010, for example, 62 percent of tablet owners were under the age of 34 and only 10 percent were over the age of 55. By Q2 2011, only 46 percent of tablet owners were under the age of 34 and the percentage of those over 55 had increased to 19 percent.

 

Looking at the data by gender underlines key changes in the eReader category. Sixty-one percent of all eReader owners are now female, compared to a mere 46 percent in Q3 2010. (Smartphone owners are now evenly split between male and female and tablets remain primarily male.)”
