Mobile is quickly becoming the primary means of people connecting with one another on the web. The desktop and laptop can’t be with you 24 hours a day, but the handheld device sure can. Internationally, the number of people utilizing mobile to access the web are even higher. For many countries, it’s their only means of access.
Mobile devices aren’t just communicating devices anymore. People are constantly downloading apps and shopping from their phones. Because of portability, the availability to get discounts, coupons and also the means to easily perform product research, handheld devices are quickly becoming the secondary outlet to retail stores when something is out of stock.
