Amazon Announces Amazon Dash, A Handheld Scanner for Ordering Groceries For Home Delivery Using AmazonFresh

amazon-dash-lead

Amazon has announced Amazon Dash, a handheld hardware device designed for ordering food online through home delivery grocery service AmazonFresh, which is similar to FreshDirect.

Dash has a built-in scanner you wave across products’ barcodes to add them to your grocery list via WiFi. There’s also a built-in microphone, if you’d rather add a product with your voice. Once added to the list, you can order the products through the AmazonFresh website or the company’s mobile apps, with next day delivery for most of the 500,000 applicable products. Amazon is currently offering signups for a free trial for Dash, though the AmazonFresh service is presently limited to delivery in Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles.
