Amazon promised to deliver Echo Auto before the end of the year… and if today’s shopping cart error (?) is any indication, we’re getting very, very close.
Contributor Adam Miarka was able to add the highly anticipated gadget to his cart, with early adopter discounted pricing of $25, yet was unable to complete the transaction (as pictured).
For a brief period, I followed in Alan Wolk’s footsteps and traveled with an Echo Dot in the car and I did briefly consider the Roav, however it’s not compatible with my console. But, clearly, I’m interested in having Alexa with me on the go. If Echo Auto doesn’t work out, perhaps I’ll give the Garmin Speak a look – which looks to feature $50 close-out pricing. Not bad, considering it even provides a small screen for directional cues.
While Alexa, presumably, won’t read or respond to text messages, release timing is good now that it narrates Gmail and Outlook.
