Wireless devices make popular gifts

If you seek a smart holiday gift, keep in mind that 56 percent of American adults are smartphone owners, according to the Pew Internet & American Life Project. But which smartphone is the right present for your grandmother, father or kids?

Senior citizens may prefer smartphones with larger screens, such as the Samsung Galaxy Mega and Samsung Galaxy Note 3. The Galaxy Mega is outfitted with a 6.3-inch screen, while the Galaxy Note 3 features a 5.7-inch display. They both have an 'Easy Mode,' and the large screens make it easier to use email, messaging social media and Skype with their children and grandchildren. A recent study by U.S. Cellular revealed that wireless technology helps grandparents stay in touch with their grandchildren. In fact, more than half (56 percent) of the grandparents surveyed call their grandchildren and nearly half (48 percent) text them using their mobile devices. A third of the grandparents (33 percent) even said mobile devices have improved their relationships with their grandchildren.
