And the growth is not just happening in a single demographic group. The growth is occurring in young adults up to those people who are in their 50s.

The survey was conducted on 2,253 adults ages 18 and older and based on the result they have found out that there has been a considerable jump in smartphone growth a year before. This includes the major demographic groups, men, women, adults (young and middle aged), urban and rural residents and wealthy and not wealthy.

As of February 2012, the report said that smartphones were used by almost half (46%) of the population of US adults. As compared from last year, May 2011, it has grown by 11%. They have also said that 2 in 5 adults (41%) own a basic mobile phone. It only shows that smartphones were dominant in the society.
