Pew Internet Project: 35% of U.S. Adults Have Smartphones

The penetration of smartphones in the American marketplace continues to gain momentum. The Pew Internet Project's first standalone report on smartphones finds that over one third of American adults — 35%, to be precise — now have smartphones.
Additional findings include:
  • 87% of smartphone owners access the internet or email on their handheld; 68% do so on a typical day
  • 25% of smartphone owners cited their phone rather than a computer as their principal means of accessing the Internet.
