There is no denying it, the world is going mobile. People across the globe are turning to internet connected devices and to help them communicate, organize, work, play, and, of course, search. In a blog post, search giant Google noted that mobile searching is up 130% year-over-year on its network. The article, which is promoting seller ratings for mobile, goes on to cite a study that states 59% of holiday shoppers plan to use their mobile device to “facilitate holiday shopping.” One this is certain, if/when NFC takes off, mobile devices will be doing more than facilitating purchases… they’ll be doing them.
