Old habits die hard, but more importantly, new habits are much harder to make.

Number of personal computer users in the US: 223,810,000

Number of cell phones in the US: 327,577,529

Seems like people would prever their PC and their phone work the same, rather than have to learn two different ways of doing things, and since there are more phones, it's on the PC to emulate it.

Pew: 17% Of U.S. Cell Phone Users Now Mostly Use Their Phones To Go Online

However, 17% of U.S. adult cell phone owners now go online using their phones more than their desktops, laptops or tablets...Just looking at those who already use their phones to go online (55% of all cell phone owners), a whopping 31% now say they mostly use their phones to go online.
