UK consumers are set to spend more than anyone else in Europe on buying goods using mobile devices this year, says a new report.
Shopping comparison firm Kelkoo estimated spending will top £4.5bn, against £2.7bn in Germany and £1.9bn in France. It compares with spending of £700m in 2010 and follows a big increase in the number of people with smartphones.
