M-commerce will eventually become as commonplace as online shopping. Seven in 10 frequent business travelers are now carrying smartphones. PhoCusWright’s Mobile: the Next Platform for Travel finds that 77% of frequent business travelers with Web-enabled mobile devices have used the mobile Web to find local services and attractions.
