The roadtrip-ready Echo Auto finally comes to Australia

Amazon's first car-focused Echo smart speaker is now available for preorder in Australia.

Announced late last year, the Echo Auto is a smart speaker for your car. The pitch here as that you'll be able to call upon it to do all the things you can with a regular Echo speaker when you're on the move. 

The gadget itself is powered by either a USB connection or 12V in-vehicle power outlet and can also feed through to your car's radio through a 3.5mm audio cable or a Bluetooth connection.

To help it compete with the noise of the engine in your car and other acoustic factors, Amazon have gone and equipped the Echo Auto with a custom-designed eight-microphone array. 

In Australia, the Echo Auto is available for preorder now at an RRP of AU$79. Amazon say that devices will ship on June 10 with the smart speaker arriving in Australian retailers around the same time.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
