Amazon re-invents the Joggler?

I wonder if they bought up the OpenPeak patents / IPR - should be a rounding error in their accounts...

Joggler makes an ideal partner for an Echo , the Alexa app sort of works on Android sometimes , it had to happen :-) people love voice control but you need a screen for Album art etc

Now officially announced.
Screen is not a touch (maybe it has touch - see later) one ... presumably why it is called "Echo Show".
Available for pre-order (USA) and shipping in June.
https://www.amazon.com/Amazon-MW46WB-In ... B01J24C0TI
Big discount off announced list if 2 ordered now ... and has some features to enhance having 2 (video intercom between them - e.g. Baby minder).

Edit
Added touch update

Hmm I'm not convinced Paul , even a Joggler with an Echo Dot or one with a £35 Fire tablet would have touch screen !
Interesting but a fail from me without touch , there are times that speech just doesn't cut it .

It might well be a touch screen. I have since found that there is a one line mention of touch in the technical spec ... but nothing in any of the videos using it.
I presume they want to avoid comparison with a regular tablet and are stressing the voice input (and 18 microphones).
