Nielsen: U.S. consumers crave TVs, mobile devices
Here's what you need to know about media and tech consumers ahead of the Consumer Electronics Show. There are a whole lot of TVs and cell phones out there and more and more people are using those technologies to access the Internet.
According to a handy fact sheet by Nielsen:
* Average Number of TVs per U.S. Household: 2.5
* Percentage of Americans with 4 or more TVs: 31 percent
* Number of Mobile Phone Users (13+): 228M
* Percentage of U.S. Mobile Subscribers with Smartphones: 31 percent
* Number of mobile phone Web users: 83.2M
Watch for the television and mobile device spree to continue. According to a Bloomberg story global television sales boomed 17 percent last year -- but not so much for 3D TVs. And Gartner expects sales of tablets to triple to 60 million units this year.
