The new Echo Show is already a huge hit with consumers.

Amazon launched the Echo Show Alexa device on Tuesday through a pre-order. The new intelligent display and speaker is shipping end of June. Apparently consumers have been waiting for a voice controlled smart display that allows to make video and voice calls on top of the features of the original Echo.

The black Echo Show leads the electronics top seller charts on amazon.com. The white version sits on 4th place. The $229.99 Echo Show outsells the $39.99 Fire TV Stick with Alexa Remote and Echo Dot. 

Consumers who ordered an Echo Show do not need a review pundit to tell them too. Amazon has not yet made Echo Show units available for review. There are no Echo Shows reviews online at the moment. The trust in Amazon to make a great gadget is at the level of Apple. 

Amazon's products are not without problems. The original Fire TV stick was too underpowered for 3rd party video apps. Only the current Fire TV Stick with Alexa Remote has the necessary hardware to run 3rd party video apps smoothly. 

For now the Echo Show shipping date for current pre-orders has not shifted from the June 28 date. This could soon slip. The Amazon Echo Show comes with a great deal right out of the gate. Customers who buy two Echo Show devices receive a $100 discount with code SHOW2PACK.

Amazon's new Echo device offers video calling on a 7-inch touch screen. Other features include voice over ip phone calls and displaying answers on screen. Users will be able to ask Alexa to pull up products from the amazon online shop and answers from the net.

Users can watch video flash briefings and YouTube, see music lyrics, security cameras, photos, weather forecasts, to-do and shopping lists, and more. Alexa Show also displays lyrics on-screen with Amazon Music. Users just ask to play a song, artist or genre, and stream over Wi-Fi. Also, stream music on Pandora, Spotify, TuneIn, iHeartRadio, and more.

The Echo Show features room-filling speakers with Dolby processing for crisp vocals and extended bass response. Alexa on the Echo Show works with front door or baby monitoring cameras from Ring and Arlo. Amazon offers several deals on Amazon Devices to mark the launch of Echo Show.
