Mobile shopping and barcodes
I see a lot opportunity for startups in the mobile shopping space. The whole experience needs to be re-thought and re-designed. Plenty of room to innovate fresh interfaces, checkouts, social integration, advertising platforms, data collection systems ect. The market is huge. Barcodes and mobile barcode scanners are starting to facilitate connection between physical products and mobile phones....
Some good startup advice
