Guess What Tablets Are Mainly Being Used For

Tablet devices are on the rise, giving tech savvy consumers a convenient way to check their email, search the web, read the news, and shop online, after they've finished playing games. A recent survey shows tablet owners are using their high-tech toys to play games more than any other activity.

Google's AdMob subsidiary polled tablet owners in the US to see what they were doing with the wondrous electronic one-sheets more than anything else, and gaming came out on top. Of the 1400 users polled, 84 per cent said they used their iPads and similar devices as a way to game on the go, beating out searching for information (78 per cent), emailing (74 per cent), and reading the news (61 per cent).

In other interesting tablet numbers, 62 per cent of users primarily tap their tablets at night, 69 per cent on weekdays, and 82 per cent at home. Working from home as I do, I wouldn't have been a very good survey respondent.

My iPad is primarily a book delivery device for me, though I do play an awful lot of games on it. That's for work though, so it doesn't count.

Do you have a tablet? What do you use it for? I mean aside from porn?

    I'd say primarily email/typing during the day with ibooks and some sneaky gaming in bed

    Nearly all my friends with a tablet spend all their time trying to figure out a use for it.

      Sounds like an intellectual bunch :P j/k
