Get a free Echo Dot and Philips Hue smart bulb when buying an Echo Show for $180 (save $115)

When I set up my smart home infrastructure a couple of years ago, I had to break the bank to buy a smart speaker, connected bulbs, and intelligent plugs. Even though we often share deals that let you save a few bucks on such products, this one is particularly interesting. Indeed, Amazon is throwing in a free Echo Dot speaker and a Philipe Hue bulb with the purchase of an Echo Show smart display. The three products together would cost $295 if purchased separately, but with this offer, you'll only have to pay the Echo Show's price for the whole bundle.

Pre-order an Amazon Echo Show 5 two-pack for $150 ($30 off)

More and more smart displays are coming onto the market, and Amazon's Echo Show 5 is one of the smaller offerings. As the name suggests (sort of), it has a rather minute 5.5" display, meaning it'll go head to head with Lenovo's similarly tiny Smart Clock. Amazon is currently offering a $30 pre-order discount for those who purchase two, bringing the price down to $149.98 for both.

Ecobee’s new SmartThermostat features modest redesign and improved voice recognition for $250

The Ecobee4 has been our go-to smart thermostat here at Android Police for quite a while. Its connectivity with various smart home protocols and integrated Alexa voice controls round off the device's temperature regulation capabilities, making it one of the best smart thermostats around. Today, Ecobee has announced the successor to its successful two-year-old product, and true to the proverb "if it ain't broke, don't fix it," not much has changed. The thermostat comes with a modest redesign, the same Alexa integration, improved processing power, and better sound.

Amazon may save the Sprint/T-Mobile merger by buying their MVNO and spectrum

The $26 billion Sprint and T-Mobile merger has been through a regulatory rollercoaster in the past several months. The pair had thought they could push through the transaction while preserving all of their spectrum and wireless service brands — but even with favorable political conditions, this didn't prove to be the case. This past week, we learned that the two have promised the FCC that they would sell prepaid carrier Boost Mobile and that the Department of Justice would require the two to divest enough spectrum to create a tenable "fourth carrier" replacement. Now, according to Reuters, Amazon has come into the dealer's circle with its offers.

Amazon launches Lenovo Smart Clock competitor, the Echo Show 5, with a bigger screen and a built-in camera

If eight or ten-inch smart displays are too big for you and the Echo Spot is a little too small, you weren't left with much choice until very recently. Thankfully, Lenovo unveiled its 4" smart clock back in January, but Amazon just launched a new rival that might be more seducing.

Amazon extends Announcements to Alexa built-in devices

Back in April, Amazon announced a new feature called Announcements that let users broadcast voice messages to Echo devices. Although these could be initiated from a phone with the Alexa app, they required an Echo speaker for the message to be played out loud. However, the company is now extending the functionality to other devices with the voice assistant built-in.
