Web devices gain strength

Jupiter Communications announced today at its annual Consumer Online Services conference in New York that 20.6 million households will access the Internet by non-PC appliances by 2002. The consultancy also reported that PC penetration into American homes will slow down as the millennium approaches, although PCs will remain the major access platform, with 47 million households using computers to get to the Internet. TV-based devices will account for 12.7 million households (or 22% of the market). Web screen phones will take 5% of the market, or 2.6 million households.
