Google is Learning How Smartphones Impact In-Store Shopping
Seventy-nine percent of smartphone owners are what Google calls "smartphone shoppers," meaning that they use their smartphones at least once a month in stores. That's a lot of people. If there are 130 million smartphone users in the U.S., then about 111 million Americans use their smartphones to prepare for shopping or to look things up while there. It's not surprising that Google wants to get in all those heads and see what's going on. There's money there!
