Ubiquitous connectivity beckons this holiday season, bringing with it a new wave of Mobile Commerce (M-Commerce). Consumers can soon expect SMS and MMS coupons, the ability to run price comparisons in real time while at the store and even mobile phone shopping from the comfort of home.
According to a recent Yankee Group survey, 14 percent of consumers are interested in mobile transactions, and an additional 18 percent say they may be interested. Yankee Group predicts the mobile coupon market will reach 2.5 million North American consumers by 2013, ballooning the dollar-amount of the market to $2.3 billion.
In this webinar, Yankee Group analysts Jon Paisner and Andy Castonguay reveal further trends from our consumer surveys and explore the devices, conveniences and challenges of M-Commerce as mobile is integrated into the retail shopping experience this holiday season.
