From Iceland — Tablet Computers In Every Other Home

Tablet Computers In Every Other Home

Published December 5, 2013

Nearly every other household has a tablet computer or 49% of all homes in Iceland. One year ago, 31.8% af households had a tablet computer.

This means that 61,250 households own one, which is an increase of around 21,500 this year alone.

These are the findings of a consumerism- and lifestyle survey carried out by Capacent, reported on in Thursday‘s edition of Kjarninn.

Tablet computers were marketed in april 2010 and became massively popular right away.
At the end of April 2010, 4.9% of Icelandic homes had attained a tablet computer. One year later, tablet computers existed in 17.7% of Icelandic homes.

Last year, every third household had a tablet computer, so the progression has been pretty fast.

The survey also shows that men are more likely to own a tablet rather than women but when looking at age groups, tablet computers seem to be equally popular with the young and old, although 46.5% of all tablet computers in Iceland are owned by people aged 35 to 54.
