https://www.amazon.com/Amazon-Echo-Show-Alexa-Enabled-Black available in a stunning choice of Black or White. You'll need to use YouShop (or similar) to ship it to New Zealand.

 

I've already purchased my Echo Show and apart from a plug adaptor it will work as long as you use https://alexa.amazon.com 

 

Extra features over standard Echo are: videos (for amazon prime, video calls, security cameras, etc) and photographs, etc.  

 

Please Note: Do NOT change over to https://alexa.amazon.com_au as the device doesn't speak Australian and you'll have an expensive and useless object to explain to your wife.

I'm pretty sure $179 is now just the normal price now. They obviously gone back up as they were down to $149 from early December and when I was in the US in early Jan they were still the same price as I was tempted to get one.

 

Amazon's pricing and why way it marks discounts is incredibly dodgy - it certainly wouldn't be allowed here in NZ

With youtube gone from amazon devices I dont see any benifit for me over the echo spot with the bigger screen on this one.

 

If they could sort out their petty differences then I would reconsider this one for the kitchen, but till then will just leave the big round echo in there.

It was really interesting to see at CES that Google (at this stage at least) have no plans for a Google Home with a screen. They've left it solely to 3rd parties with a few of them launched there.
