Echo Dot is most popular thing in Amazon's Black Friday sale. The Echo Dot 2 is sold out until December 1.

Amazon has another gadget that breaks sales records. Remind you that Amazon once was a book shop. Now Jeff Bezos online imperium is making many of America's most popular consumer electronics gadgets. How did this happen? 

According to a statement received from Amazon, Amazon.com customers ordered more items on Black Friday in 2016 than Black Friday 2015 in the US. Amazon earlier announced new record in mobile orders on Thanksgiving Day. Mobile orders from Amazon customers on Thanksgiving Day exceeded both Thanksgiving and Cyber Monday 2015.

 "Echo Dot was the best-selling item on Amazon.com on Thanksgiving and continues to be the best-selling item on Black Friday so far," said a Amazon spokes woman on Friday. 

Of all the things Amazon sells, the Echo Dot 2nd Generation is the most sold on Black Friday. This is surprising. The Echo Dot 2 is only discounted by $10, but the device is so popular with consumers that this rebate is enough to drive sales. In fact, Amazon is sold out of the Echo Dot until December 1.

The Echo Dot 2 sells for $39.99 on Amazon.com. Ordering before Cyber Monday guarantees to receive the dot before Christmas. 

The Amazon Echo Dot is a hands-free, voice-controlled device with a small built-in speaker—it can also connect to your speakers or headphones over Bluetooth or through a 3.5 mm audio cable to deliver stereo sound to the speakers you choose. Dot connects to the Alexa Voice Service to play music, provide information, news, sports scores, weather, and more..

Echo Dot can hear you from across the room, even while music is playing. When you want to use Echo Dot, just say the wake word "Alexa" and Dot responds instantly.
