Is there a link to this study? Usually when someone posts news, they link the sources.
I found it:http://www.richrelevance.com/blog/20...obile-matters/
Makes way more sense when the whole thing is read. Interesting read only issue I have with the numbers is that I do not consider my iPad as mobile. I do a ton of shopping on it but I do it sitting in my living room. When I think of mobile, I think of phones. I wonder what the numbers without tablets in them look like? If tablets on the go are considered mobile, would not a laptop be considered the same? The rabbit hole runs deep.
Here is an interesting quote from the article:
"Mobile online spending has been growing steadily over 2011, with sales from mobile devices doubling from 1.87 percent of total retail sales in April to to 3.74 percent in December. Retailer's websites also saw an increase of traffic from smartphones, which grew from under 9 percent to 18 percent."
So sales from "mobile" devices is 3.74% of total retail sales, of that only 18% of sales are from a mobile phone. Thats a crap load of Tablets, which we know Apple's iPad dominates the market. So based on this quote, the article should read iPad has 74% of the sales from mobile devices, considering iPad has 75% of the tablet market:http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/1...n_1080051.html
I almost have to say, no duh CPT obvious. iPad has 75% of tablet market and iPad has 74% of tablet mobile sales, who would of thunk.
With that said, I wonder what the numbers for mobile phones looks like?
I know there are a ton of smart folks on here so if my numbers or thinking is wrong please tell me. Fanboys need not apply, not interested in how awesome you are and how not awesome everyone else is.
