japan.internet.com recently reported on goo Research’s 8th regular mobile shopping web site use.
Between the 13th and 15th of May 2013 1,090 mobile phone (including smartphone) using members of the goo Research online monitor group completed a private mobile internet-based questionnaire. 57.0% of the sample were female, 1.9% in their teens, 19.1% in their twenties, 36.7% in their thirties, 28.8% in their forties, and 13.5% aged fifty or older.
I’m in the never even accessed category; the survey was, I believe, focused on physical goods, not services, so buying from an App Store was not counted.
