Amazon tests website redesign; easier for tablet use
Amazon's revamped website, which will be rolled out gradually, is less cluttered and has more white space and fewer buttons.
Amazon.com is testing a major redesign for its website, one that should be easier to use with a tablet computer.
The Seattle-based company started tests last week, The Wall Street Journal reported Sunday on its website, citing Amazon.com spokeswoman Sally Fouts.
The revamped site, which will be rolled out gradually, is less cluttered and has more white space and fewer buttons. The search box is also bigger, the Journal said.
The newspaper also reported the new site emphasizes digital goods, like e-books, music, video and software, over such physical goods as toys, clothing and sports equipment.
Amazon is expected to introduce a tablet computer soon, according to those familiar with the device.
