Amazon Begins Redesign Testing for Retail Site

Written on September 05, 2011 by Avlya Jaie

Amazon.com is in the process of testing out a redesign for its retail site.

Recent reports revealed that Amazon just started a redesign testing for its retail website — a possible signal for its new tablet’s arrival.

The Wall Street Journal confirmed that the tests began last week and will continue to be kicked off to more customers, though the date of its full launching remained undisclosed. The revamped design now gets a cleaner interface with more lighter space and larger search box. The manufacturer also announced that the redesigned site will be featuring new applications, digital games, ebooks, and MP3 songs.

Rumors have claimed that this redesigning issue might mark the launching of a tablet-optimized site. Last July, several reports were disclosed, stating that Amazon’s rumored Android-powered tablet might be released by October with a price of $250. Perhaps the company is aiming to offer the tablet in a much affordable price, so they could be one of iPad’s top competitor.

Amazon Opens eBook Gifting

Written on November 22, 2010 by R. Depp

No need to drop by the bookstore to get the bestsellers for Christmas presents. Amazon.com rolls out its eBook Gifting accessible through Kindle.

Amazon launched a great way to avoid the awkwardness brought about by gift cards and donations made to charities which bear the sender’s name. The online merchant introduces the eBook gifting.

The Amazon device, Kindle, will provide “Give as a Gift” link to e-books which can be sent as presents. Recipients will receive e-mail confirming that a gift was received. The e-book can be read on any device which supports the Kindle software. But the recipient needs to download first the software.

This strategy made by Amazon is very convenient for those who do not have enough time to do their holiday shopping. When e-books are remained unopened, recipients can be exchanged for Amazon.com gift cards.
