    Amazon just sent a serious message to the rest of the tech world today. They announced a new product called the Amazon Echo, and it could be poised to become serious competition for Apple's Siri. The Amazon Echo is basically Amazon's in-home version of a digital personal AI-like assistant, and it might just be a real game-changer.

    Please check out more about the Amazon Echo over to our original article on the product at DroidForums: http://www.droidforums.net/threads/...ounced-surprises-from-out-of-the-blue.276013/

    After you check out the article, please share your perspective on whether or not you think this device could be a major or minor shakeup of the tech world.

    This seems to be only a stand alone device and not integrated into mobile devices and computers like Siri. Has there been any announcement of Amazon Echo appearing on Android phones and tablets?

    No, it won't be announced for any other devices. The main way it could alter perceptions though is if their new AI is as robust as Siri, Google Now or Cortana, they could conquer the living room space, and make our non-Amazon phones and tablets less useful while at home. This could snowball into even bigger gains for Amazon, and they could eventually branch out into other areas with similar tech.
