More than half of Americans surveyed (56%) claim that they possess a smartphone, according to "Smartphone Ownership-2013 Update," a report from the Pew Research Center's Internet & American Life Project. This is the first time in the two years the Pew Research Center has been tracking smartphone adoption that a majority of surveyed Americans reported owning an iPhone, Android device, BlackBerry, or Windows phone. While iPhones and Android devices are evenly represented in the total cellphone population, iPhones are more likely to be owned by those at the higher end of the education and income spectrums.
