Shopping With Your Smartphone

Thursday, June 30th, 2011

When it comes to a unique way of shopping, an interesting trend has been growing.  Consumers using their smart phones to look for stores, best prices and online purchases has been steadily increasing the last several years.  Already, 25 of the 30 top online retailers have iPhone apps, even though less than 15 percent of online consumers report having used their mobile phones to buy something.

Research company Forrester Research states that mobile shopping, which was at $3 billion in 2010, will explode to $31 billion by 2016.  A main concern for consumers right now, is safety with online purchases, but that will soon fade as consumers become more comfortable and technology continues to advance.

Don’t forget, if you are ever in a pinch for a great gift from Abt, we have our own mobile site to make your shopping easier than ever.
