Here are a pair of interesting statistics from the blog item:

1. Google searches conducted on mobile devices grew 130% year-over-year as of Q3 2010.
2. An unnamed “mobile marketing association” reportedly found that 59% of holiday shoppers plan to use a mobile phone to help with their holiday shopping
