Even more, it showed that tablet commerce is producing far greater results than smartphone shopping.
Of all of the tablet commerce resulting from email marketing, 99 percent came from iPad versions of the device.
Among all of the mobile purchases that stemmed from marketing emails, 56 percent were from tablet commerce instead of from smartphones. As iPads make up the majority of that category, this indicates that those devices are having a massive impact on the results that email based mobile marketing is having on the return on investment of these brands and marketers.
