Mobile shopping in Australia doubles in 7 months

A recent article on Inside Retailing Australia describes how Aussies have gone mobile shopping mad.

“In 2010 so far, Australian consumers bought more than one million items on eBay via mobile devices.”

This is double the number of people who were using their mobiles to shop just seven months earlier.

Interestingly, eBay’s mobile sales in Australia are growing faster than they are in any other country with Aussies buying one item every 15 seconds.

These are very promising indicators but eBay is just one site. I’m keen to see if this sort of behavior is seen across the board with other retailers. How is the Combined Taxis App going? What about the pizza chains non-voice mobile offerings?
