In its second-largest acquisition, Amazon buys the company for $970 million.
Amazon’s m-commerce site led iPhone response time testing across three major carriers.
Amazon’s mobile site produced the fastest iPhone access time among large web retailers in February, across three major service providers, says Compuware Gomez. Last month, Amazon.com produced an average iPhone mobile response time of 2.64 seconds.
M.Sears.com came in second in iPhone testing with 3.27 seconds, followed by LLBean.com (4.25 seconds), Dell.com (4.50) and m.BestBuy.com (4.64).
Gomez measures the average iPhone response time for the three major service carriers: AT&T, Sprint and Verizon. Testing for each all 20 retailers takes place once per hour, per carrier from two U.S. locations (Virginia and California).
Gomez measures response time as the end-to-end time elapsed while downloading each mobile site. Click here for the full test results.
