The report shows that younger adults, ages 18-34, are more likely to favor smartphones for retail activities than any other age group. While overall, consumers are more likely to purchase using a tablet (35%) than a smartphone (28%), this younger generation is more inclined to make purchases using their smartphones (43% vs. 35% on a tablet). In comparison, those 35-54 are more apt to use a tablet for their shopping needs and are more apt to make purchases on those devices (41% vs. 35% general population).
