According to Amazon's Echo Show product page, the $230 Dollars device features all of the hands-free voice-activated features of Alexa, as well as a 7-inch touchscreen that displays photos, YouTube videos, weather forecasts, music lyrics and more.
Some criticized the look of the Echo Show when the leaked images hit the net.
The device is now up for pre-order on Amazon.com for the price of $229.99. The Amazon Echo show allows the users to do much more than ever before. It's powered by Alexa so it can do anything and everything that you can do with a normal Echo speaker. As you'd expect, every Alexa "skill" that's supported on other Echo devices is also available for the Echo Show.
