Day: December 27, 2017
December 27, 2017The holiday shopping season is finally over, and that means Amazon has some shopping data for us. This holiday season, Amazon’s Echo Dot was the top-selling Amazon device, as well as the top-selling product available from any manufacturer across all categories on Amazon.com, with millions sold. Meanwhile, Amazon’s newer Alexa-enabled devices, the Echo Spot, Echo Dot and Echo Buttons, sold out this holiday season. However, customers can pre-order those devices to reserve a place in line. Amazon’s Alexa app also topped the charts for Apple and Google Play on Christmas day, suggesting an influx of new customers setting up their devices. In total, Amazon said it sold “tens of millions” of Alexa-enabled devices worldwide. Techcrunch Cortana, Siri, and Google I think will be hard pressed to be number 1 on the market. Apple with there large userbase may have a chance.
