How'd you like to do your holiday shopping stretched out on your couch?

If you've got a smart phone or most any mobile device and an agile thumb, you can shop easily and efficiently from your sofa or anywhere else. And mobile shoppers can still get the same bargains – or even better deals – than the fearless shoppers who brave the crowds and long checkout lines of traditional brick and mortar retail outlets.

"Mobile shopping is expected to be up about 100% over last year," said Jill Dvorak in a telephone interview with WalletPop. Dvorak is Senior Consultant, Mobile Commerce, for FitForCommerce, a best practices eCommerce consultancy.
