Future of Smart Shopping

SCANBUY Shopper enables cell phone users to have the best bargain. SCANBUY Shopper allows you to check the best prices provided by major online retailers. All you need is a mobile phone with data-plan enabled! Just Check products by entering their barcode number. Compare online prices, access reviews, and redeem coupons.
Being smart shopper is spreading to real world with our phones. I am so excited about this technology. There are endless opportunities. For scanbuy eyes, they may offer to compare local prices. And they may recommend us, product we'd like to buy as Amazon do. For entrepreneur eyes, Scanbuy serves only the USA. What about to serve the same service to another countries.
I think, this application has also huge opportunities for cell phone makers. I think manufacturer should standardize this kind of application on their phones as they standardize time, alarm etc…
And finally, this application is a big thread for brands. Because transparency melts profits. It encourage people to be more smart buyer. Brands should reorganize to claim price premiums. Brands should add themselves another aspects of experience and authenticity.
