ARTICLES: Children 'switching from TV to mobile internet' (UK)

Wednesday, 11 January 2012

Television is being pushed aside by mobile internet gadgets, a UK survey of young people's technology suggests.
The number of children with televisions in their bedroom is falling - almost matched now by those with their own personal internet access, says the annual Childwise monitoring survey.
Among seven to 16 year olds, 61% have a mobile phone with internet access.
Children use their mobiles for an average of 1.6 hours a day, the survey of 2,770 five to 16 year olds says.
The biggest trend in children's use of gadgets, according to the report from the market research company, is the growth in internet use through mobile phones.
The survey was based on interviews carried out in autumn 2011.
