One in five Americans say they own or plan to own a tablet within three years

Twenty per cent of Americans own or plan to purchase a tablet computer within the next three years, according to results of a survey conducted by Harris Interactive (sponsored by app designer Fuze Box). [reported by Folio:]
Both personal and business reasons will drive the tablet purchases, with 53 percent of respondents saying they plan to read e-books and newspapers on the device (that actually eclipsed gaming, which just 33 percent of respondents say they'll be doing on tablets).
While men are more likely to say they own or plan to buy a tablet than women in the next three years (26 percent versus 18 percent), women are more likely to say they'll use tablets for social networking (60 percent versus 43 percent, respectively).
