Who Uses Mobile?
More than 75% of mobile users have smartphones*, which means that millions of people in the United States are using their phones to browse websites online. There are 321.7M Wireless Subscriber Connections according to CTIA.org.
People who travel use their mobile devices to quickly search for hotels and compare rates online. Ask any flight attendant on a plane and they will tell you the importance of being able to quickly search for hotel rooms and book a room using a mobile phone, especially when a flight gets delayed or canceled. The easier you can make booking a hotel room the better, and with a mobile site from OpenHotel, we couldn't make mobile booking any easier for guests.
