Investorideas.com Newswire

In terms of emerging companies entering the space, MobileBits (OTCBB: MBIT) issued news that their company and SAMY were named as a finalist in the Mobile Apps category of CTIA's annual Emerging Technology (E-Tech) Awards competition. The CTIA E-Tech Awards honor the industry's most innovative new wireless products and services in mobile apps, consumer electronics, enterprise & vertical markets and network. Winners will be announced at CTIA 2013(TM), taking place May 21-23, 2012 at the Sands Expo & Convention Center in Las Vegas.

SAMY is a patent pending, direct marketing and engagement network. It offers businesses an out-of-the-box, ready to deploy mobile marketing solution including online tools to connect consumers with sales and marketing initiatives such as coupons, discount offers, rewards, and loyalty programs redeemable at the point of sale (POS).

In an article in www.thestar.com last fall, Business Reporter Francine Kopun referenced SAMY as a frontrunner in the competition "A new app promises to provide consumers with a mobile mall experience, giving Groupon (GRPN) a run for its money.”

The Arbitron report went on to say, "A greater percentage of iPhone® users (67.5 percent) use mobile apps for commerce compared to Android™ users (43.9 percent) in the Arbitron Mobile U.S. smartphone panel. iPhone users spend more time than Android users with mobile commerce apps (105.3 minutes/month vs. 87.6 minutes/month) and conduct more virtual shopping trips (35 sessions/month vs. 29.5 sessions/month.) "

Mobile Commerce Web Domains
Compared to mobile commerce apps, web domains are accessed, whether directly by browser or as a consequence of app usage, by a significantly larger share of U.S. smartphone panelists, but the time spent and the number of sessions each month with web domains are significantly smaller.

Amazon, the leading web domain for smartphone commerce, is accessed by 34.7 percent of U.S. smartphone panelists, compared to the Amazon Mobile app, which is used by 13 percent of the panel. The Amazon users spend far less time accessing the Amazon domain than with the Amazon app (19.8 minutes/month vs. 40.0 minutes/month for the mobile app). Amazon users also access Amazon via their smartphone browser far less often—5.7 average sessions/month vs. 10.9 average sessions for the Amazon mobile app.
