Live from Amazon’s fall 2019 hardware event

‘Alexa, show me a thousand Echo devices’

For the third year in a row, Amazon is holding a fall event to showcase its newest Echo (and other) hardware ahead of the holiday season. Unlike previous years, however, Amazon isn’t keeping this one a surprise — it let the world know it was happening — but beyond that, we don’t know a lot.

Last year, Amazon announced over 70 products in a single keynote, a frenetic pace of Echo speakers, Alexa features, a clock, a strange DVR you put in your attic, and a microwave. It was that kind of show.

This year, because Amazon has done a good job of keeping things under wraps, we don’t have as strong of an idea of what to expect. More Echos are probably a lock, but we might also see new earbuds and maybe a robot? Devices from Amazon subsidiaries, like Ring or Eero, or maybe something completely unexpected like new Fire tablets are also possible.

Join us as we find out what Amazon has in store (pun not intended) together.
