Handsets Are the Americans’ Favorite Gadgets, Followed by Their PCs

A recent study published by the Pew Research Center has shown that Americans love their handsets the most and as far as ownership is concerned, the report proves that 85% of the people questioned now own a cellphone. The report bears the name of “Americans and Their Gadgets” and it also found that the desktops and notebooks are fighting for the second place, following handsets.

Mobile phones are owned heavily and wanted by young consumers, but surprisingly enough the elderly also have a passion for technology.
