Echo’s speaker is also handy as a portable sound system. It provides hands-free voice control for Amazon Music, Prime Music, iHeartRadio and TuneIn. Plus, Spotify, iTunes and Pandora through Bluetooth from your phone or tablet.
Amazon Echo costs $199, but Prime members can get it for $99 for a limited time. Getting one isn’t as easy as one-click buy. You’ll need an invitation. Head on over to the Echo’s website to request one.
Echo’s a cool gadget, but I just don’t see the point in having one. Everything it does can be done with the phone in your pocket. Still, if I had the money to blow – I would probably have one sitting right here beside me.
