Do You Have a Smartphone? — Survey of the Day
Whether they realize it or not, the majority of Americans now own smartphones.
A recent survey by the Pew Internet and American Life Project found that 45 percent of adults say they have a smartphone. Additionally, 49 percent report their phone operates on a smartphone platform -- such as Android, iPhone or Blackberry.
When Pew pooled together the responses to both of these question they found that 53 percent answered yes to one of them, meaning they have a smartphone.
The most popular type of smart phone is an Android, at 20 percent, followed by iPhone (19 percent) and BlackBerry (six percent.)
Eighty-eight percent of adults now have some sort of cell phone.
