35% of Americans older than 16 own a tablet

Those making a good income have been spending some of their cash on a tablet or e-reader. The number of Americans making $75,000 a year or more with a tablet has risen from 25% to 50% over the last year. 38% of Americans in that salary bracket now own an e-reader, double the 19% who owned one last year. What makes these figures so electric for tablet and e-reader manufacturers is that there remain plenty of Americans still without a slate or e-reader that are going to be in the market for one or the other.

I believe tablets are useless. Either get a real phone or use your laptop. I did buy a Nexus 7 for my 9 yo. niece though so I guess I'm adding to this statistic

Actually alot of people are no moving from laptops to tablets as evidenced by a drop in laptop sales and an increase in tablet sales. Tablets are usually lighter and have more variety in form factor (e.g. hybrids) and you can usually get them up to core i5 or i7 chips as well which means that unless people see the need in the old laptop style theyll just buy a tablet instead...
