Curiosity made me purchase my first Amazon Echo. I went all in with Alexa after ordering my first one. It’s funny now, how I nearly forgot about the order when it arrived.
My Echo Show arrived on June 28th. While I won’t award Amazon any product design awards for the hardware, the inclusion of the camera and screen speak to a new and different future for this Amazon device. After I unboxed my Echo Show, I almost immediately did a video chat with a former colleague in Florida. Granted it wasn’t professional grade video conferencing but it was an OK experience for a first generation consumer device. Echo Show could make video conferencing accessible to mass consumers.
