As reported from Ginny Marvin, phones and tablets have increased their presence over their more traditional laptop/desktops this year. One in three purchases on Monday were completed on mobile devices. Smart phones were up 5 percent to 18 percent this year, and tablets were up 3 percent to 11 percent for 2013.
Personally, I thought mobile devices would take more share from desktop this Cyber Monday, but I have a feeling when the entire holiday shopping season is over, we will see a higher overall increase in mobile purchasing. I have a feeling consumers are waiting a little longer for better sales this year closer to Christmas. At least, that’s what I’m doing.
