Women are the early adopters of all kinds of technology. We talk on our phones and send more text messages than men, spend more time using location-based services, and own the vast majority of Internet-connected devices, including e-readers and health gadgets.

Seriously, just make devices that have a tangible benefit, and people of all walks of life will buy it.
