There's some discussion about this in the "Echo" thread.

I had a feeling I was posting this in the wrong spot. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

I ordered a black Dot, which I'll pair with my portable Creative Sound Blaster Roar speaker. I already have an Echo and a Tap, and I'm very happy with both.

Wow... Looking at the capabilities, "Alexa, read my book."

Now that is an incentive to get one!

I'm getting one for my elderly Mom. She can use the options she enjoys (timer, alarm, classical music) and I can listen to my audiobooks while washing the dishes and cleaning the kitchen. Currently, I have one in my living area and bedroom and use it mostly for audiobooks.

I still can't get the light switch thing to work right. However, I think if I focused on that a bit, I could figure it out. I just want a lamp at the end of a long hallway to turn on so that I don't have to turn the overhead light on.

I am keen to buy an echo and I was thinking of getting a tap as a Christmas gift for someone. Are they likely to go on sale on Black Friday, do you think?

I'm pretty sure we'll see sales for all three (Echo, Dot, Tap). I'll be following them, along with other gadgets, in the Black Friday thread.

Even if it were available here, I doubt I'd buy it. I really don't see the advantage of that thing (and that from a gadget freak!)

[ Ditto, and I'm in the US so it *is* available. But I didn't think this thread was a polite place for me to say so! But, you aren't alone. ]

I guess some people are freakier than others!

I like it better than the tap. I like the voice activation. I like the price. I'll be annoyed with myself, if it's a Black Friday deal.
