I'm not sure if you guys have heard the rumours, but Amazon are set unveil the new Echo device today, the Amazon Echo Show...

"Amazon's new Echo Show is widely expected to feature a 7-inch touchscreen above an Alexa-equipped speaker, adding voice and video calling to its existing smart home feature set."

Pre-orders are due to go live later today (£219.99/€239.99/$229.99) with shipping set for a July 28th (US) release.

What do you guys think, interested in the £80 hike over the Echo for video functionality?

Is this not slowly just becoming a big mobile phone?

Very much so. The Amazon Echo Show will add voice and video calling to its existing smart home feature set[Trusted Reviews].

I do like the idea of the screen, it could well make a nice addition to the desk for Amazon Prime Video whilst working, but I'm not entirely sure I want to upgrade my existing Echo for that function alone for a £80 price increase.

No, it is more like a home computer than a smartphone.

They will probably add a keyboard and mouse to it next.

I thought the point of the Echo was that it's hands-free.

The addition of a touchscreen removes that belief.

I can't see this selling as well as the standard echo ..

Why do we need this when we've got Skype ??and like previous comments the good thing about Alexa is it's voice activated :D

That's like asking why do we have Facetime when Skype existed in the first place. Easy, competition and traffic to sell to advertisers.

Amazon Echo Show, how many episodes in each series?
Can I buy the boxsets and binge watch or would Amazon Prime be enough to see it weekly?
