According to Pew, 34% of U.S. adults now own a tablet computer. Count me in! Think -- iPads, Samsung Galaxy, Kindle Fire, and Nooks.
This research appears in the latest update from the Pew Internet & American Life Project.
Therefore, the actual number of Americans acquiring tablets is amazing. Just one year ago, only 18% owned tablets, according to Pew. During May 2010, one short month after the release of the iPad, about 3% owned tablets.
Certain demographic groups are more likely to own tablets:
56% -- Adults in households earning at least $75,000 per year
49% -- Adults aged 35-44 (49%), compared to older adults
49% -- College graduates, compared to adults with less education
