They lowered iPhone X sales projections for the first quarter of next year, citing signs of lackluster demand at the end of the holiday shopping season, and the company's shares fell 2.5 percent Tuesday, weighing down the Dow Jones industrial average.

Despite the perks, it's not clear how many of Amazon's millions of new Prime members will stick around.

It looks like a lot of people tried out Amazon's Alexa on Christmas.

Amazon's record-breaking holiday season signals mounting trouble for brick-and-mortar retailers already struggling in the face of the e-commerce giant.

"Since Day One we have obsessed over what we believe our customers care about - incredible deals and low prices, fast and free shipping, and a wide selection of top products - and we continue to provide all three, all the time", said Jeff Wilke, Amazon's CEO of Worldwide Consumer. Predictably, Amazon didn't release any specific sales figures, only noting that Echo Dot sales ranged in the millions. Small businesses and entrepreneurs who sell their products on Amazon's platform accounted for almost 140 million items that were ordered. "Thank you to the millions of customers and hundreds of thousands of Amazon employees all around the world who made this holiday better than ever before".

Amazon's official statement regarding the matter reads,"Echo Show and FireTV now display a standard web view of YouTube.com and point customers directly to YouTube's existing website". Every second that passed saw more than 1,400 electronic products ordered on mobile devices.

The most requested song from Alexa during the holidays was "Jingle Bells". Its peak day of customer fulfillment was December 19, 2017.

Mobile shopping helped push Amazon sales: Customers shopping on the Amazon App increased almost 70%, and more than 1,400 electronics products were ordered per second on a mobile device this holiday season, the company said.
