Black Smartphone Ownership Soars

African Americans are much more likely to own a smartphone than any other race or Hispanic origin group, according to Pew Internet and American Life Project.

In 2013, 64 percent of blacks aged 18 or older owned a smartphone versus a smaller 53 percent of non-Hispanic whites and 60 percent of Hispanics. In the past year, African American smartphone ownership climbed 17 percentage points compared with a smaller 11 percentage point gain among both Hispanics and non-Hispanic whites.
