Echo Goes Visual – GeekEstate Blog

I received an email from Amazon yesterday…

In order for the Alexa to deliver an amazing experience for many scenarios — certainly a real estate one — it needs a connected screen.

Echo Show is that screen.

The $229 price is a bit steep, but I’m sure that will come down a bit over time. I’m not sure what would entice me to buy another $200+ home electronics item, but it would have to be pretty compelling (unless it replaced my Apple TV). Maybe it’ll be an in-home video conference system — I don’t think I’d personally pay for that, but I’m sure some would. All that said, if I was Apple, I’d be a bit concerned that Alexa is seemingly so far ahead of Siri in the connected home.
