Amazon, eBay and Wal-Mart Are Becoming Truly Mobile-Centric Companies



Amazon, eBay and Wal-Mart haven't just embraced mobile as the latest sales channel. They have made their mobile sites and apps so compelling that their mobile usage sometimes rivals that of social networks. Amazon is so strong on mobile, it sees more mobile-only users in the U.S. than Facebook.
