The portability of the electronics has become one of the consideration points in recent times as more and more people chose to consume the content on the go or even in the comfort of their beds. TV makers need to figure out how to capture their customers again as they now face competition not only within the industry but from these devices too. William - http://www.jensenrvdirect.com

The survey does address early adopters, but geographic data shows the following from the report: "A higher proportion of consumers in emerging markets (such as China, Russia and South Africa) than in mature markets (such as Germany and Japan) are conducting activities weekly on their devices. To do these activities, emerging-market consumers are much more often downloading free apps than paid apps. And they are taking advantage of online services more often than their mature-market counterparts."

This survey is going to skew towards internet connectivity because it polled online people. There is still a portion of our society that use little or no internet connectivity.

chanj: the pdf can be downloaded and it contains the demographic data (among the five age groups between 18, and greater than 55, it is mostly evenly divided): http://www.accenture.com/SiteCollectionDocuments/PDF/Accenture_EHT_Research_2012_Consumer_Technology_Report.pdf#zoom=50

A survey back in November adds another twist to the changes in consumer TV watching behavior. That survey found that 80% of mobile device owners regularly multitask on their mobiles while watching a show on their TV -- IM, texting, talking, social networking, etc. Not only are consumers doing more of their TV watching on mobiles, but even when they are watching a full-sized TV, they are often using their mobiles at the same time to do other things. Those are tough challenges for TV advertisers!

The experience of watching action movie on a bigger screen device is still better than watching through a handheld device. I would be very interested in learning what the age group and demography of the survey being held.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
