Amazon announced two new additions to its Echo family of products. First is the Amazon Echo Dot Wireless Bluetooth Information Hub for a low $89.99 Free Shipping (can only order thru Amazon Echo or Fire TV with Alexa currently). Tax in many states.
Although this product is new and has not been discounted, it does offer a way to get all of what the Echo offers at a lower price and smaller form factor. And since many of us already have nice speakers for listening to music, you save even more over buying the original Echo.
The new Echo Dot has the same array of seven microphones (from the original Echo) that use beam-forming technology to hear you from any direction and from far distances, even when music is playing. It uses your voice commands to fetch news & information (local radio stations, NPR, and ESPN), music (Amazon Music Library, Prime Music, TuneIn, and iHeartRadio), weather, and more, and reads it back to you. The brains of the operation reside in Amazon's cloud server (which you access via WiFi), so it will be able to be continually updated with better services and information. Just in the last few months Amazon has added local search from Yelp, movie showtimes, Samsung SmartThings support, Google Calendar, Audible audiobooks, text-to-speech for eligible Kindle eBooks, and hundreds of new skills from third-party developers.
They also announced their new Amazon Tap (pre-order now, ships 3/31) for $129.99 Free Shipping, which has similar functionality to the Dot, but has a more powerful speaker built in. It does not have the array of seven microphones and requires a button-tap to use Alexa's voice commands, but is portable, and does not need to be plugged into a wall outlet during use.This Deal is provided by our partner Tech Bargains at www.techbargains.com.
