And the statistic. 22% of Hong Kong smartphone users had changed their mind in the store, while shopping, due to information they got from their mobile phone. In some cases, we call up our friend and ask for advice, maybe we select a different item than what we intended to purchase. Sometimes we see a price, are not sure, and do some price-comparisons via the phone. We may go to a competitor store's site, and decide to buy that same good from a rival store (ouch!) or go see whether that good is available on an online store and buy it and have it delivered to our home all for less than buying it from the retail store where we are currently standing, looking at that very item. 22% of smartphone owners have not just used their phone in the store - but have changed their mind, driven by the mobile phone. For this stat, obviously I do not have a link as that was a slide shown at the Google Think Mobile event, but you can quote the source as Google Ipsos Study of Hong Kong Smartphone Users, September 2011.

We have the absolute concrete evidence now, proving beyond any shadow of doubt, that there are indeed two webs, the old-fashioned legacy internet like we use on our desktops, laptops, netbooks, and iPads, which is for lack of better term, the 'fixed internet' where we have large screens and we use the device seated, with both hands, with plenty of time to consume. Like I write in my books and teach in my workshops, this is the 30 minute metaphor.

Hi Tomi, I'm feeling lucky that I came across this wonderful post of yours. Though it was posted some 3 years back, it is still relevant. That means you'd sensed the importance of mobile phones (mobiltelefoner) in our decision-making process much earlier. Yes, it is now a reality that every retailer needs a mobile strategy. Being an online retailer myself, I've already realized the importance of this strategy. Thanks for the info!
