Smartphone and tablet use has increased exponentially in the past five years.

The Pew Research Center released a study Thursday showing the percentage of Americans that use various electronic devices.

While more than 80 percent of adults owned cellphones in 2011, smartphones weren't nearly as common, with only 35 percent of Americans owning an iPhone, Android, BlackBerry, Windows phone or something similar.

Since then, the numbers have increased at sharply different rates. Although the share of cellphone users slowly crept up to 92 percent of Americans this year, the percentage of those owning smartphones shot up to 68 percent.

From a demographic perspective, race and ethnicity play little role in current smartphone ownership. Instead, smartphone owners are likely to be younger, richer and more educated than non-smartphone users.

Following Apple's release of the original iPad in 2010, the number of tablet owners has also skyrocketed, according to Pew.

As is the case with smartphone owners, people with tablets tend to be younger with more education and more income, evidence of the "digital divide" that separates the rich and the poor in the U.S.

Despite increases for other devices, computer ownership has remained fairly steady since 2004. Millennials are less likely to own computers now than in 2010, though, which may signal bad news for the future of the industry.

Unlike with smartphones, computer ownership did vary by race. While 79 percent of whites owned a computer, only 45 percent of blacks did.
