The Dallas Morning News — “Consumers use smart phones to shop around as they shop”
GRAPEVINE – Millions of people no longer head home to sign on to the Internet to shop. And that number is growing as fast as iPhone, Android and BlackBerry mobile devices can be stocked in stores.
One in three mobile phones in the hands of American shoppers this holiday shopping season will be smart phones that empower – and entice – consumers in real time.
Last year, more than 60 million Americans were mobile Web users, up 33 percent from 2008, according to Nielsen. This holiday season, Nielsen predicts one-third of all mobile phones in use will be smart phones, up from 21 percent a year ago.
