Tablet Owners Increase Submitted: 01/24/2012
- If you got a tablet under the tree over the holidays, you're in good company.

The percentage of Americans who own a tablet nearly doubled between December and January.

Jumping from 10 percent to 19. The statistics are the same for E-readers, according to the Pew Research Center's Internet & American Life project, which conducted pre- and post-holiday surveys.

The project's director tells nbc he's never seen such growth since the center started looking at the adoption and use of digital technology.
