Handbags4Hunger joins the mobile world

Joining the ranks of Amazon and Target and other major online retailers has been a dream for a long time. I can finally say that we took a step that the majority of major retailers have yet to do - we opened our own mobile shopping site Handbags4Hunger.mobi. It's exciting to be able to say Handbags4Hunger is one of the first to open it's doors to the mobile world.

The increased popularity of Web-enabled phones in the United States has helped online shoppers become mobile Internet shoppers. One in 10 online consumers said they purchase online from their mobile device, 16% compare prices and another 16% research product details, says PriceGrabber.com in its report, Mobile Internet Shopping Trends.

As mobile Internet is gaining momentum, in the U.S., the number of people using their mobile devices to access news and information on the Internet more than doubled from January 2008 to January 2009. Among the audience of 63.2 million people, 22.4 million (35%) did so daily; more than double the size of the audience last year, reports research firm comScore.

All I can say is, let the shopping begin!
