Tablets, what are they good for? Primarily shopping and entertainment, according to a new study into how consumers use their devices.
It found that two-thirds of US and UK tablet owners use their tablet for researching product information before buying online (66%), making it the most popular consumer activity.
This was closely followed by watching videos/browsing photos and checking prices or store information (both 63%).
The research by Usablenet confirms much of what we already know about tablets in that the devices are mainly used during ‘lean back’ leisure time in the home.
