These are the findings from the most recent study published by the Cefrio. For the first time in Québec, the number of adults who own a smart phone (44.4%) is greater than those who own a basic cell phone (39.8%). This remains lower than in the U.S. where ownership of smart phones stands at 56% and 91% of adults own at least a mobile phone (smart or not). (U.S. data from Smith, Aaron, Smartphone Ownership, 2013, Pew Internet & American Life Project)
The number of tablet users in Québec has doubled in the past year - from 12.7% in 2012 to 25.5% in 2013.
