Research: Dutch have fewer PCs, but smartphones




he number of Dutch with a desktop at home taking off, according to research by Rating Foundation. Conversely, rising owning smart phones and tablets. Also owning media player and dongels, such as Apple TV and Chromecast increased significantly.

From figures of Audience Research Foundation shows that now 44.9 percent of Dutch people over 13 years has a desktop PC, compared to 51.5 percent six months ago. While owning desktops falls, take it from smartphones and tablets to. The tablet ownership increased from 53.3 to 56.7 percent, while smartphone ownership actually increased from 62.5 to 73 percent.

That does not mean that people no longer use the classic PC screen and keyboard: 70.7 percent of respondents said they have a laptop. That is as much as six months ago. In 92.4 percent of homes have one or more computers, both desktops and laptops. Six months ago it was 92.5 percent; too small a difference to speak of a decrease or increase.

The survey also shows that traditional television is present in 97.3 percent of households. On average there are 1.6 televisions per household. Six months ago it was 1.7 televisions per household, but that difference is too small to draw conclusions. One in three households have a television that can connect to the Internet, while 85.6 percent of households have access to digital television.
