The biggest trend in stores for 2011 isn't going to be the return of high-waisted jeans, teen apparel or even super skinny TVs. In fact, the biggest trend won't even be in stores at all, but coming from outside, as in how we'll access goods and services from our phones.

Like online shopping before it, mobile shopping lets us click and buy without setting foot in the store. Smartphones after all, are little more than mini computers in our pockets; "in our pockets" being the key part of that phrase. We take our phones with us while shopping and there lies the real benefit.
