Tablets For All

A new Pew Research Center report shows that one third of American adults now own a tablet computer of some kind, which is a pretty remarkable trend if you stop and think that the first modern tablet, the Apple iPad, only came out a little over 3 years ago. It's not just a "young adult" trend either, as 30-40 year olds are a significant group of adopters.
When the Pew Research Center first started tracking tablet ownership in May 2010, only three percent of adults said they had a tablet computer. The continued growth of devices like the Kindle Fire, Samsung Galaxy Tab, Google Nexus and Apple iPad have chipped away at sales figures for laptop computers over this same time period, leading several analysts to predict that tablet sales will surpass laptop sales soon, most likely within in the next two years.
