    Great article, I love to see write ups that use numbers from many sources since statistics are always a bit dodgy to deal with.

    I would love to see more mobile numbers broken down by device type (tablet vs. phone) or screen size. Many tablet users shop on what is effectively the desktop version of a store, so merchants who don’t take that into account may feel their conversion rates for “mobile safari” is a reflection of their single-column layout (or mobile version), which is not the case.

    This may seem obvious, but I talk to many merchants that miss this distinction and wind up investing in mobile with incorrect expectations.
