With 11 hours of battery time, Amazon launches its Echo Input Portable smart speaker in India
Amazon’s Echo Input Portable smart speaker will be available for Indian customers from December 18. Just in time for the Xmas shopping spree. This limited edition device offers 10 hours of continuous music playback (and 11 hours of standard usage) on a single charge! The device—which offers 360 degree sound with a 1.5" speaker—is powered by a big 4,800 mAh rechargeable battery.
At a recent press meet, Parag Gupta, Head of Amazon Devices India, told IANS, "Customers in India love Alexa, and told us that they wanted a hands-free experience that could move from room-to-room. This was the inspiration behind Echo Input Portable, and we cannot wait to see how our Indian customers enjoy the flexibility of this portable smart speaker in their homes."
Weighing in at just 448gms, this voice-controlled smart speaker with Alexa is designed to be carried around your home while you continue to listen to your favourite music. It is also designed to protect your privacy concerns as the company claims that it is ‘built with multiple layers of privacy protections and controls, including a microphone off button that electronically disconnects the microphones.’ Users can also view, hear, and delete your voice recordings at Alexa Privacy Settings or in the Alexa app at any time.
The 1st generation product, currently priced at INR 4,999, comes with black fabric design and is available for pre-order.
