Travelers from Asia are the most likely demographic to book, search, and compare accommodation options on mobile devices, according to a survey conducted by AsiaRooms.com and Lenovo.

The survey of 6,000 people found that travelers across all demographics are more likely to search for accommodations on a mobile device than actually book or compare prices.

The top deterrents to using mobile device for accommodation booking are hard-to-read content on small device screens and a slow or unstable Internet connection.
