Premium Amazon Echo with 7-inch touchscreen reportedly in the works

One year ago   |   By PhoneDog

One year ago   |   By Pocketnow

Nobody, including e-commerce giant Amazon and its often eccentric Lab126 engineers and developers, expected the Echo smart speaker to catch on. Certainly not as fast as it did, and on such a large scale that it reportedly sold over 5 million units since 2014, prompting several low-cost spin-offs , and let's face it, a Google-made copycat .
Without a doubt, the voice-controlled home automation hub owes much of its mainstream commercial success to the built-in Alexa personal assistant, which is now also available as standard on an all-new Fire TV Stick , select Fire tablets , and third-party...
