Amazon Unveils Echo Dot & Tap Devices

Amazon unveiled theĀ Echo device back in 2014. For $179, everyone can add a voice operated robot to their living room. Today, Amazon added two more products to the Echo line, the $89 Echo Dot and the $139 Tap. Similar to the original Echo device, they all use Amazon’s Alexa framework to recognize voice commands and react accordingly. All 3 devices have different feature sets, but essentially, the Echo Dot is a smaller version of Echo and the Tap is a portable version of Echo.
