Some 44% of global online adults age 16-64 say they own a tablet, according to a recent report from GlobalWebIndex.

However, only 70% of tablet owners say they have been online using their device in the past month, compared with 92% of desktop/laptop owners who say they have used their computer to go online in the past month and 83% of smartphone owners who say so.
