  • A recent study done by Google’s research team found that playing games is the second most done activity on Android tablets. The study is called “Understanding tablet use: a multi method exploration”. The study involved 33 participants recruited from 3 locations all over the US: San Francisco, New York and Milwaukee.

    Google covered rural, urban and suburban areas and participants were recruited according to criteria like gender, age, education, occupation, commuting habits, tablet characteristics and such. Moving to the results, the findings showed that email checking is the top activity done on a tablet, with 84.8% of the participants resorting to that activity the most times when using a slate. Over the course of the 2 week test period, the participants had 774 incidences of tablet use, or which the ruler was the email with 146.

    Second place is playing games, with 84 incidences and then social networking with 51. Next up is looking up information with 45 and then listening to music at 39, followed by watching videos and films. I would have expected social networking to be much higher, but if Twitter and Facebook play their cards right they might replace email checking right there at the top. It’s also nice to see that Angry Birds and the like are starting to matter… More details can be found in the full study here.
