My Opinion?

For retail and so many other industries goes: Mobile will be the next gateway.

There are 5x more mobile devices than PC’s in the world and consumers see their mobile phone as first screen or second brain: They really love their device, the content they can access with it and the connections they can create with it.

Invest in a stunning mobile web presence and embrace iOS and Android per tomorrow.

Trust me, you should coin the mobile trend now. Claim your fame.
