- 94% of Americans have a mobile device
- 53% of Americans own a smartphone
- 86% of smartphone users send text messages
- 75% of smartphone users access email
- 63% of smartphone users engage in social media networking
- 82% of smartphone users search the Internet
- 72% of smartphone users watch video; 31% of those watch at least once a day and 42% watch several times a week

comScore says that with smartphone penetration now past 50%, the market has entered the “late majority” stage of the technology adoption bell curve:
