Breaking It Down: Pictures and Numbers

SAP’s The Mobile Consumer report is chock-full of interesting info about the state—and the future—of mobile commerce. Luckily, we’ve broken down 100+ slides into easy-to-understand infographics for you.

People are using their mobiles to make purchases—32% have done in the 12 months, according to our recent Mobile Consumer survey results .

That in itself is interesting. But what’s even more interesting is taking a step back and looking at global trends.
