According to the GfK Connected Consumer Index, of the 78 countries examined, consumers living in Hong Kong and North America are the most connected.

That means they are among the technologically savviest and most likely to make smart devices a part of their daily lives, such as smartphones, tablets, mobile PC, desktop PC, wearables, smart TV, TV set-top box, video game console, e-reader, connected car and smart home.

The report also showed, however, that consumers in the United Arab Emirates have been quickly closing the gap, leap-frogging from eighth to third place in just a year.
