The U.S. online shopping world's biggest day is here, but will strong web sales on Black Friday and Thanksgiving cut into Cyber Monday's take?
There’s no denying the attention Amazon.com draws from consumers and competitors, or the attention the e-retailer lavishes on its own new products.
There’s no denying the attention Amazon.com draws from consumers and competitors, or the attention the e-retailer lavishes on its own new products. Big announcements, such as the Kindle Fire, the upcoming tablet that will be an Amazon product showcase, and new content for Amazon Prime customers generate letters from CEO Jeff Bezos posted on the Amazon.com home page. The Kindle Fire could drive more sales for Amazon, both of digital content and hard goods. Bezos also made sure members of Amazon Prime, the e-retailer’s shipping program, know they can view more than 13,000 movies and TV shows for free through Amazon’s Instant Videos. There’s no doubt more to come. As the Kindle Fire uses the Android mobile operating system, developers could tailor their smartphone and apps for the new device.
