US tablet owners doubled in 2012
By Jerry Carrion

It was way back in 2010 that tablets started getting wide adoption, with the first iPad, but it wasnít until 2012 when suddenly they started appearing in almost every home. In fact, tablet ownership has reportedly doubled in the United States in 2012, according to Forrester.

A survey covering almost 60,000 Americans concluded that 19% of them owned a tablet. The survey was for adults 18 years old or older, and found that the elderly are the slowest in tablet adoption, which isnít surprising. People 47 or older were the ones least likely to own a tablet, with 14% of them having tablets, which is double the number from 2011.

Thatís no surprise when you realize that 84% of adults go online every day, up from 78% last year. Tablets are everywhere.
