9 in 10 tablet owners multi-task when watching TV

Surveying device owners across 15 countries, the market research firm found that these folk typically use applications for email, web browsing, Facebook and checking the weather when watching a TV program. However, analysts dispelled claims that tablets are on the cusp of replacing TVs, even if they did suggest that iPads and Android slates are impacting sales of smaller television sets. “There is a commonly held belief that the increasing popularity of tablets and smartphones will cannibalize or otherwise adversely affect sales of other devices,” said Riddhi Patel, research director at DisplaySearch. “While we see that tablet ownership affects [...]
