This study explores the relationship between use of tablet PCs in daily life and individuals’ perceptions of wellbeing. Our results indicate that the number of features used and the degree to which different features are used directly influence individuals’ subjective wellbeing and exert indirect effects on physical wellbeing. These findings suggest that more research is needed to advance understanding of the phenomenon. Developing understanding of these relationships could facilitate efforts to engage people meaningfully with IT and support improvements in wellbeing for individuals, social groups, and society.
