Purchasing an Amazon Echo will no longer require Prime users to wait for an invite from the company. It is now available for regular Amazon retail customers for a new price of $179.99. The device will start shipping on July 14th for folks ordering now. Here's what Amazon had to say about the great success for the amazing device,
"The customer response to Amazon Echo has been incredibly positive, and we've been working hard to build more as quickly as possible. We are grateful to our early customers for their incredible engagement and for providing us with invaluable feedback to help shape Echo as it evolves—with their help, we've been able to add features like Audible, Pandora, home automation, sports scores, calendar, and more. We're excited to get Echo into the hands of even more customers and continue to invent new features and experiences." ~ said Greg Hart, Vice President, Amazon Echo.
