In brief: One in every four US travellers carries a tablet – and it's almost certainly an iPad, according to US in-flight Internet provider Gogo.
Yet despite the boom in tablets, four out of five flyers still carry both their notebook PC and their tablet on board, while only one in five tablet-toting travellers leave their laptop at home.
Their tablet of choice is the iPad, and their smartphone is an iPhone, based on network data analysed by Gogo engineers as signals are beamed down from US airlines such as American, Delta, United and Virgin.
The iPad/iPhone pairing accounts for 78% of Gogo's in-flight Internet access, with Android phones and tablets a distant second at 15%, while the BlackBerry cowers at a mere 4%.
Gogo pulled those and other stats for website Mashable, which then created an interesting infographic – part of which we've included below. For all the numbers and the complete pretty picture, head to Mashable.com.
