Some 25% of Americans own a tablet computer, up from 10% in December 2011, according to a new survey from the Pew Internet & American Life Project.
The percent of Americans who own an e-reader hit 19% in November, also up from 10% last year. That brings the amount of Americans who own either device up to 33%, up from 18% last year, according to Pew.
The surge in tablet and e-reader ownership goes hand-in-hand with a rise in e-book readership. The percent of all e-book readers was up 9 points to 30% in November, compared with 21% last December. The sharpest increase was in women, up 11 points to 31%.
