Internet Retailer reports that a new IBM Benchmark report suggests that “sales stemming from smartphones and tablets accounted for 11% of total online sales, up from 5.5% in December 2010,” and that “total m-commerce sales for 2011 were expected to exceed $10 billion.”

According to the story, the report “also found that 14.6% of all online sessions on retailers’ sites were initiated from a mobile device, more than double the rate of 5.6% during the same period in 2010.”
