U.S. employees still stick with their trusty desktop computers when it comes to on-the-job devices, based on a September 2014 study. However, this may not last forever, as there was a noticeable drop in desktop usage between 2011 and 2014, from 84% of U.S. employees to 71%.
Though a meager 7% of respondents reported using tablets for work, they were the only device type that saw an increase in usage. Laptops saw a tiny decline in usage, as did smartphones.
Meanwhile, another study (from CNBC) found that 78% of business execs worldwide use their smartphones for business and 75% use tablets.
