More American Adults Own Smartphones Than Normal Cell Phones: Pew

According to a new report from Pew Research, more than 46 percent of adults in America own a smartphone owners as of February 2012, which is up 11 percent from the last time they did the survey in May 2011, when only 35 percent of Americans owned a smartphone.

The report also found that 41% of American adults own a cell phone that is not a smartphone, which is pretty significant since this means that smartphones are the predominant type of cellphone in this country.

Here is more from Pew: “Nearly every major demographic group—men and women, younger and middle-aged adults, urban and rural residents, the wealthy and the less well-off—experienced a notable uptick in smartphone penetration over the last year. Overall adoption levels are at 60% or more within several cohorts, such as college graduates, 18-35 year olds and those with an annual household income of $75,000 or more… Chief among these are seniors, as just 13% of those ages 65 and older now own a smartphone.” (Via Digital Book World).
