The next kingdom of speech

Amazon has finally brought its voice-controlled Echo speakers to the UK. The devices offer access to local services (including the Hive heating automation I already use) and feature a British-accented version of the Alexa virtual assistant; deep, deep joy.

As a Prime customer I have pre-ordered mine for £99. That is £50 off the usual price. If you want the deal you will have to follow suit by five o'clock tomorrow afternoon.
