Survey: gaming main use of tablets

Gaming tops the list of the uses for a tablet in a survey by a Google subsidiary of 1,400 U.S. owners, according to the Guardian.

Searching for information, at 78 percent, and emailing, at 74 percent, come in as close seconds, reported the Guardian.

The survey concludes the tablet is a domestic device, with 82 percent of respondents using their tablet at home while only 7 percent use them at work, said the Huffington Post.

Although 77 percent reported a decrease in the amount of time they spent on their desktop or laptop computer, reported the Huffington Post, only 23 percent said they regarded their tablet as their primary computer.

Online shopping, at 42 percent, and reading e-books, at 46 percent, bring up the rear, said the Guardian.
