Over half tablet users take device on vacation

Wednesday 28 November 2012 | 16:10 CET | News
Almost 60 percent of Dutch consumers with a tablet take it with them on holiday, while a third leave it at home, according to the Telecompaper Consumer Panel in a survey of 600 tablet users. Most take the tablet in order to play games, check e-mail or read news; especially 40-50 year-olds cited games as a reason to bring the device along. Twenty percent of older people also cited banking as a reason to have the device on vacation, while just 5 percent of 15-19 year-olds saw this as a reason to pack their tablet.
