Here are the most popular products from Amazon's 'biggest ever' holiday season

In its press release Amazon said it sold "tens of millions" Alexa-enabled devices around the world, although it didn't give more specific figures. The top three items ordered via mobile were the Echo Dot, Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote and the TP-Link Smart Plug, according to Amazon.

Amazon's Fire TV Stick was the top-selling line of streaming-media players in the U.S., U.K., Germany, and Japan on the site, with the site selling twice as many Fire TV Sticks this year vs. last year's holiday season. As one quick example, Amazon notes that customers ordered more than 1,400 electronic products per second via mobile devices during the recent holiday shopping season. More than 4 million started a Prime trial or paid membership in just one hectic week of holiday shopping. The holiday season was also a boon for Amazon's Prime membership program.

Jio's Rs 199 prepaid recharge plan gives subscribers 1.2 GB daily data while the Rs 299 plan offers 2 GB data per day. As the telecom battle gets stiff, major service providers have started pushing dirt cheap offers, each passing day.

Ahead of the holidays, Amazon expanded Prime delivery to allow customers in 8,000 cities to order right up until the last minute of Christmas Eve - and it seems to have made good on that promise. Companies continue to handle their own packaging, shipping and customer service.

Echo Dot, Echo Spot and Echo Buttons all sold out. Oh, and the most requested song from Alexa users this season?

The recipe for chocolate chip cookies was the most requested recipe this holiday season. The East Coast of the USA requested holiday music from Alexa 250% more than the West Coast did. This holiday season, Amazon sales are expected to account for more than half of all online shopping sales - a sign that the e-tailer remains a top choice among consumers.

The company's popular product, Amazon Alexa, which is a voice-based assistant software behind Amazon Echo, was the most downloaded app on Christmas Day in both Apple Store and Google Play, two virtual stores for the iOS and Android mobile operating systems.
