The rumors are beginning about a new Echo. This iteration will have (we are told)!a touchscreen and better-quality speakers. Before I'd buy it, Amazon would have to convince me it was better than putting my iPad (or even a Fire) in a cradle with built-in speakers. And of course this may be completely wrong, or just a prototype tested that will never be marketed.

I thought the whole point of the Echo was that it was voice controlled, rather than having a screen interface like a tablet. I'd prefer them to put their energies into what you can do with the Echo as it is - the choice of 'skills' needs to be expanded considerably - at least for us in the UK.

Exactly -- voice control, not another screen!
