Nielsen is the latest market research firm to state that smartphones have eclipsed standard mobile phones in the U.S. That’s just a confirmation of the findings of others, but other data the company released on Monday was far more interesting, delving into the variances supplied by race and gender.
The percentage of those in the U.S. with smartphones is now 50.4 percent, meaning more than half of U.S. mobile subscribers have moved from feature phones to devices like Android phones and the iPhone.
Brooklyn native Busta Rhymes will be headlining this year’s Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival, happening July 9th to the 14th.
While the full lineup has yet to be announced, Busta Rhymes will be curating the entire day’s events (July 16). They’re calling it “Busta Rhymes and Friends” As the festival goes into it’s eighth year, organized by the folks at Brooklyn Bodega blog, It’s something of a natural progression from last year’s edition with Q-tip where he brought out Busta to perform “Scenario” (Other surprise guests at that show included Kanye West, Black Thought and Monie Love.) This year it’s Busta’s turn to take center stage and bring out his own share of guests.
