That’s according to a report by David Luu entitled Handheld Device Convergence. In addition, a Nielsen survey predicts that by Christmas, 2011, one in two Americans will own smartphones which will then outnumber feature phones. Speaking of features, only 3% of smartphone owners will use their phone for voice communications only. What’s of interest to small businesses is revealed in another survey—this one from Pew Internet Project. It reports that 28% of smartphone owners access the internet with it most of the time. That comes to 8% of all US adults tapping into the internet from their phones! This usage will only continue to grow.
