Black Folks Prefer Blackberrys–Who Knew?

The Nielson Company has released some recent data that shows that African-Americans are only more likely than Whites to be smartphone owners behind Hispanics and Asians. This is interesting given all the social networking that is attributed to the African-American community. Even more interesting from my perspective, is that African-Americans prefer the Blackberry as their device of choice.

For the record: I hate Blackberrys. They simply aren’t that interesting or as easy to use given the other options available, but that’s just my take.
