Why Smartphones and Tablets will Devour the TV

BII REPORT: Why The "Second Screen" Industry Is Set To Explode - Business Insider: Along with Watching television  todays users also work  on Tablets and smartphone, and might open Kindle to read the latest best seller

while also using a smartphone or tablet is one of the most popular leisure activities of the mobile era.
The mobile industry is working hard to create mobile apps and sites that relate to what's on TV, in order to capitalize on this behavior. 

This approach is often referred to as the "second screen," the idea being that the tablet or smartphone becomes a TV companion device, allowing for added levels of interactivity— whether on social networks or dedicated second screen apps and sites that complement on-air content.

According to Businessinsider  the 2nd Screen Usage is growing rapidly: 85% of smartphone users reported second screen-linked behavior at least once a month, over 60% reported doing it on a weekly basis, and 39% did so daily

  • In the U.S. alone, TV ad spending was $18.4 billion in the third quarter of last year, a $74 billion annual run rate. If mobile can carve out even a small share of that pile of dollars via second screen channels, it would boost the mobile industry tremendously.

  • Second screen isn't really a new activity: It's a natural update to the old ways of engaging with TV, like the old office water cooler conversations about last night's football game or popular TV drama. Moreover, second screen-type behaviors were already popular on desktops and laptops, before mobile came along and made it a lot easier to participate

But contrary to what some in the news industry hoped, a majority say they are not willing to pay for news content on the devices, according to the most detailed study to date of tablet users and their news consumption habits.

    The study, conducted by the Pew Research Center's Project for Excellence in Journalism in collaboration with The Economist Group, finds that the vast majority of tablet owners -- fully 77% -- use their tablet every day. They spend an average of about 90 minutes on them.

    Going Online Via Tablets: How it impacts CTR

    Based on its analysis of 16.2 billion visits to the websites of more than 150 retailers in 2011, Adobe Digital Marketing Insights found that Tablet Visitors spend over 50% more per purchase than visitors who use smartphones (“Smartphone Visitors”) and over 20% more than visitors who use desktop/laptop computers (“Traditional Visitors”).

    Additionally, Adobe found that Tablet Visitors are
    three times more likely to make a purchase than Smartphone Visitors and nearly as likely to purchase as Traditional Visitors.

    Why Tablet Visitors  are  more valuable to retailers? Adobe’s analysis identifies two factors that could explain this finding.
    First, Tablet Visitors are more affluent than other online shoppers and tend to be males. According to the June 2011 study, A Portrait of Today’s Tablet User, by the Online Publishers Association (OPA), 12% of the U.S. Internet population, or 28 million consumers, own a tablet. Tablet owners skew toward 18- to 34-year-old males and come from households with above average incomes: 29% have an annual household income greater than $75,000.

    Tablet Visitors are rapidly growing in size. Although they generate a small portion of total website visits, their share of total visits increased from 1% to 4% in just 12 months. Tablet Visitors appear to spend more because of their demographics, the nature of the tablet user experience, and the environment in which Tablet Visitors shop online
