Thanks for the great infographic! It’s estimated that by 2015 most communication and purchasing will be done using some sort of mobile device.

Nice job on the infographic. Give your marketing person a hug.
And across different sites, we’ve seen a lot of “browsers” on iPhones and Android, but nearly all the actual conversions from mobile were on tablets.
