Mobile Shopper is powered by mShopper and features more than 7 million products for sale at more than 30 popular online retailers such as eLuxury, eBags, Bluefly, Shoes.com and others. The service is free and aims to bring the online shopping experience to mobile phones. The comparison service allows shoppers to compare brick and mortar store prices with on-line retail competitors.
