More Americans Are Going Online with Mobile Devices

More Americans are going online with mobile devices such as a laptop or a cell phone, according to a new Pew Research Center study. Author Aaron Smith cited the growing functions of mobile phones that make them powerful for communications and computing. The Pew study also found more use of mobile data applications.

Six in 10 Americans are going online wirelessly using a laptop or a cell phone, according to the latest survey from the Pew Research Center. U.S. mobile-device users are also taking advantage of a much wider range of data applications than last year, the new report said.

Nearly half of all U.S. adults surveyed this year during April and May said they were using a laptop equipped with a Wi-Fi radio or mobile broadband card -- up from 39 percent in April 2009. However, 40 percent indicated they were also accessing the Internet, e-mail or instant messaging on mobile phones, noted Aaron Smith, the author of the report.
