Sprint Mobile Shopper

A new mobile shopping service has been launched by Sprint Nextel, going beyond the convention of selling downloads like music and ringtones. Simply dubbed Mobile Shopper, Sprint has lined up over 30 online stores to provide stock, such as eBags, Target and Shoes.com. These companies are selling their normal physical products, which are ordered via cellphone, but delivered via mail.

To use Mobile Shopper, users must visit the website and associate a credit card and shipping address with PIN and phone numbers; only the latter two are then needed to make a purchase. Notably, Sprint is imposing no other costs on the service other than regular data fees. Any revenue Sprint receives will come from the stores it has partnered with.
