Ownership of smartphones also continues to grow, reaching 64% of US households (up from 58%) and for the first time exceeding basic cell phones. Slightly more than one-quarter (27%) of US households plan to purchase smartphones this year, making them the top CE product (along with headphones) planned for purchase.
