One sale every 2 seconds on eBay Mobile

eBay Mobile is doing great: in 2009, there was the sale of a product every 2 seconds via the mobile version of the popular auction site, good for half a billion US dollars worth of transactions.

Especially Christmas is a good period: Xmas 2009 sold three times as much  as Xmas 2008.  Mobile users from more than 200 different countries bought and sold more than 1,5 million items in that week. 

About 6 million iPhone users have eBay downloaded on their device.  More than 750.000 daily unique visitors surf on the auction site via their mobile.

Heavy mobile use is expensive in Belgium

Heavy mobile user?  Lots of calls and text messages?  Then you pay a lot in Belgium.  The limited user is better off.  That’s one of the conclusions of a study by OESO.

If you use your mobile phone intensely, then the price you pay in belgium is just as intense.  Only 6 countries are more expensive (Spain, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Mexico, Greece and the US).  You’re better off in Holland, Denmark or Sweden.

If you’re a limited mobile user, then the Belgian tariff is fairly average.  Again, Scandinavia scores best as users from Denmark, Sweden and Finland pay the cheapest bill.  Spain, Czech Republic and the US are the most expensive.
