At a private online stream yesterday, Amazon unveiled its new lineup of hardware products, and boy, did they really let it rip. There are a ton of new offerings coming up from several of their lines, including Echo, Fire TV, and Ring. There's the new spherical Echo, a Ring-connected car alarm, and even a flying security camera — a real wonderland of tech. If you're interested in Amazon's offerings, or even just want to see what they're up to, there's a treasure trove of information here.
We know you love them deals. Frankly, though, there are just too many for us to report on each one individually. Here are a handful of sales from the past few days we didn't get the chance to tell you about.
Winter sucks for shopping. At least, it does if you're doing it in the traditional sense: driving out in the snow, fighting for parking, and watching the sun set before you're even half done. It's enough to drive someone to ditch the brick-and-mortar life and commit to an online retail existence. As luck would have it, we've spotted a bunch of good deals from some of our favorite online stores, ready to save you a buck or two on mobile tech.
If you've considered getting a smart speaker for an area your kids spend time in but you're worried they might break it, the Echo Dot Kids Edition should be up your alley. It's a regular Echo Dot, but with some additional features to make it extra kid-friendly. It's normally a steep $69.99, but it's currently on sale for $39.99.
Smart speakers are slowly infiltrating every house and room, and kids are using them more and more. When your toddlers or children want to play their favorite songs, turn on the lights in their bedroom, or ask a hundred questions about dinosaurs, having something like an Amazon Echo or a Google Home makes things a lot easier. It also gives them some independence. But Amazon went a step beyond with its special Echo Dot Kids Edition, and now you can pick one up for your child for $20 less.
