The touchscreen Amazon Echo could launch on Tuesday

Amazon could be about to launch Echo with a touchscreen as soon as tomorrow. The word comes from the WSJ citing sources familiar with the matter. The new model would feature a 7-inch touchscreen, display answers to verbal questions and feature internet-based telephone calls.

Last week several sites posted images of a device they claimed to be the upcoming Echo touchscreen speaker. The reaction was mixed. Some praised the capabilities added by the touchscreen while others blasted the device, saying it’s ugly and looks dated. Either way, such a device with the described feature set would put Amazon in front of its chief rival of Google Home.
