Amazon Echo is sold out until next year

Amazon Echo is sold out until next year
Don't bother asking Alexa where you can buy an Amazon Echo device. The cloud based information gatherer would probably tell you that the Echo is out of stock at Amazon until January 21st. There is some good news. Amazon will honor the current 22% sale on pre-orders. This means that you can reserve an Amazon Echo device for $139.99. If you absolutely need to have an Amazon Echo device now, you just might luck out at Best Buy, Lowe’s, Staples, Sears and Toys 'R' Us. Amazon bookstores in Portland, Oregon; San Diego, California and Seattle Washington are also said to have a few units hidden away.

The Amazon Dot, which resembles a hockey puck, will be back in stock on December 27th, priced at $39.99. Still available for last minute Christmas shopping is the Tap speaker, listed at $89.99. Analysts expect Google Home, a product similar to the Amazon Echo in function if not appearance, to get the majority of sales in this space since it is not yet sold out. Google Home reaches Google's voice activated Google Assistant, which allows it to be more conversational than the competition. Orders for Google Home placed today will arrive on December 28th.

Despite the competition, Amazon Echo has been a big winner for Amazon this year. Alexa plays music, gives you sports scores, news and weather. It can also control connected appliances, give you traffic reports, and read audiobooks. About the only thing it can't do is clone itself, which is why you will have to wait until January 21st to order it again.
