Tablets have finally hit the mainstream. Sofa sitters have adopted them as their primary means of sending email and Web browsing while sedentary, and many people use them for watching movies. However, e-readers are still more popular overall.

Pew Research Center recently published data showing 12 percent of US adults owned an e-reader, compared to 8 percent owning a tablet.
