Japan Mobile and Client Computing User Survey on Smart-Connected Device Use 2014

This IDC study, conducts a survey for home users and identifies how users use applications on Smartphone, Tablet, and PC (hereinafter, Smart-Connected devices) and in which locations. It then analyzes the positioning of the respective device.

"Users use different Smart-Connected devices according to TPO, yet they also use these devices concurrently. Data sharing is important here. Wearable devices are expected to see future market growth and will be one of the important applications of Smart-Connected devices when tied together with cloud services," says Hirotoshi Asano, Senior Market Analyst, PC, Mobile & Client Solution, IDC Japan.
