New Amazon Echo coming with screen and phone features

It's pretty insane. It does everything the original Echo does, but it also has a screen that allows Alexa to, well, show you things.

Echo Show brings you everything you love about Alexa, and now she can show you things. One of the new features is the ability to make calls to friends who have the Echo or Alexa app on other devices. It's also got video and voice calling built in, but from the looks of things you need to use the Alexa app rather than the service you're used to.
