Better way to say...

Any suggestions in a better way to start this quote?

Mobile devices are, “Relatively inexpensive and widely available through retail outlets or on-line.” (AAC-RERC March 2001).

When you are  inserting a quote as part of a sentence in this way, you don't need the comma or the capital letter.  This can be done with either spoken or written quotes when the person isn't actively speaking. 

 

Mobile devices are "relatively inexpensive and widely available through retail outlets or online."

 

Another option is to rephrase the whole quote.  A thesuarus is handy when trying to change how something is worded.
