Amazon hardware event

Amazon had their hardware launch event this week and showed off some of their "new products". Now most of the products weren't new, but more "newly updated". The main highlights are some updated Amazon Echo devices to fit any budget (or space requirements) with the 3 new models retailing between $99 and $149 USD. In addition to some new Echo devices, Amazon also showed off a new Fire TV device and announced a new partnership that'll see their Echo technology show up in some new vehicles. The Verge takes a closer look at the highlights from Amazon.

Amazon surprised everyone today with a press event that unveiled a bunch of new Echo hardware. The Echo speaker, originally launched in 2014, was overdue for an update after the company spun off devices with a camera and a touchscreen. Today’s event also introduced a refreshed Fire TV, just days after Apple launched its updated Apple TV with 4K support.
