Young adults are leading a revolution in how Americans use their cell phones.
People from age 18 to 29 are more likely to use their phones as personal computers, digital music players, cameras and more, an AP-AOL-Pew poll found.
Almost two-thirds of young adults use their phones to send text messages. More than half use them to take pictures and almost half to play games. They use these features, as well as Internet connections, about twice as often as cell phone users overall.
Members of minority groups were far more likely than whites to use the phones to take pictures, send text messages and use the Internet, though the minority rates were influenced by enthusiasm among Hispanics, who tend to be a younger population, the poll found.
