5 big announcements at Amazon's surprise hardware event

The look of the original Echo lives on in the new Echo Plus. "The all-new Echo and Echo Plus deliver better sound, all new far-field technology and new features we think customers will love".

In all, this is a pretty significant update to Amazon's lineup of devices, and one that should further cement its place in the center of smart homes. But it is also a bit smaller and comes in six different finishes: charcoal, gray, wood (oak), sand, silver and walnut. Both the new Echo and Echo Plus are available for preorder now and will ship on October 31. That's $20 less than the previous-generation Fire TV, $100+ less than the 4K Apple TV and the same price as Google's Chromecast Ultra, which doesn't come with a dedicated remote. The TV comes quad-core processor and is backed by a 2GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage.

Available in blue and red colours, the buzzers can be connected to Amazon Echo and serve as inputs for Alexa-powered games. Talking about the new Amazon Echo, it is the successor to the original Echo debuted in 2014. The device lets you make and take calls through a traditional phone service on the smart speaker. Recently, they announced a partnership with Microsoft which would allow Alexa and Cortana to share their abilities and skills. However, the company will most likely start integrating other features into them.

These bundles pair some of the new hardware with a complementary device and help you save money. The design of the Spot is one of the best we've seen from Amazon, though.
