As expected Amazon saw a terrific bump in holiday sales this past weekend. The company announced today that Black Friday sales of Kindle e-readers and Fire tablets on Amazon.com have grown significantly year over year. Amazon was recently ranked “Highest in Customer Satisfaction with Tablets” by J.D. Power, and Fire tablet sales on Amazon.com were up over 3x year over year this Black Friday; Kindle e-reader sales on Black Friday grew nearly 4x year over year. Customers can look forward to a great Cyber Monday deal that starts this afternoon: Amazon Fire TV for $69.
The Fire TV Stick is available for $39 for a limited time.
