If you really think that TVs will become not just an important, but even the primary way of browsing the Internet at home, then … I mean time will tell, but I’d suggest polishing your crystal ball.
Also: Dude, stop with the empty marketing slang! It’s really annoying because you’re using such big words to say so little. Your ideas are interesting, but the way you present them is presumptuous. If I made a drinking game out of you using buzzwords and marketing phrases, I’d be dead from alcohol poisoning by now. Or to put it into your words,
Drinking game is an aware synergy of counting sophisticated ways of saying less than something in the context of an intimate relationship with advanced alcohol levels, leading to a next-generation intensity of the arrival of alcohol poisoning.
Size doesn’t matter.
Echo Show is just a quick prototype to prove the concept.
It’s comparable to what Echo dot is now for Echo.
No, it’s really not. Echo Dot is a cheaper, smaller, and in many ways better Echo. It’s an almost perfect hardware for a cloud-based audio-only conversational UI, because it doesn’t get much more minimalist or inexpensive than that. If future generations of Echo focused more on audio quality, then Echo and Echo Dot could perfectly complement each other. Echo Show on the other hand is significantly more expensive, bulkier, needs closer proximity to the user — and its proposed advantages (info screen, walled off video chat) still have to prove themselves. Again, one of the biggest advantages of Echo is that Alexa works from anywhere within a room. You don’t have to pick up a device, press a button, or even raise your arm. Echo Show significantly alters that formula.
And, even if a stationary small screen proved beneficial, one of the biggest problems I see with the Echo Show is still its price. €220 for an Echo Show versus €60 — 100 for a Kindle Fire tablet. Doesn’t seem like a good price.
I believe that most Echo Show users will stop using the device for more than the audio interface and an occasional glance after half a year.
