  • Smartphone visits increased 102%
  • Smartphone orders increased 104%
  • Smartphone revenue increased 103%    

In May 2013, mobile devices generated one-third of total online visits (20% smartphones; 13% tablets) and 17% of all e-commerce revenue (4% smartphones; 13% tablets). iOS continued to dominate across all categories.
