Amazon’s New Echo Spot

Unveiled today, Amazon’s newest device, the Echo Spot is essentially a smart alarm clock. With a 2.5-inch screen, the Spot is also capable of acting as a nanny cam and making video calls—if you hook up external speakers via Bluetooth or cable. Like all Echo products, it can be controlled by voice, but also has a responsive touchscreen. Available for pre-order, it seems the Spot will arrive in time for the holidays. More at The Verge.
