Some new reports show that Americans have quickly moved beyond accessing the Internet on just desktop and laptop computers, and are now embracing a range of mobile gadgets including cellphones and e-readers.
Last Thursday, Pew Research released a report from its Internet & American Life Project showing that the cellphone is now Gadget No. 1 for Americans.
The report, the result of a survey of 3,001 American adults, compiled a list of the “seven key appliances of the information age.” The gadgets include cellphones, desktop and laptop computers, e-readers, MP3 players and game consoles.
