    So my Amazon Echo showed up today. I must say it is pretty slick for how new of a product it is. I do find myself wishing it could do all the tasks that my BlackBerry assistant can do. Now if only I could rename it to JARVIS.

    Anyone else planning on getting one?

    Mine arrives today. I'm disappointed you can't rename it. I was going for JARVIS first and HAL-9000 next.
    How has yours been operating?

    Rename it to JARVIS' JARVIS is a smart name too.

    Planning on buying one in the next day or two, have you had any issues with the Amazon Echo App?

    I received the Echo last night. Set up was easy. App works fine on my iPad but crashes before fully loading on my Q10. I'll keep trying but so far the app isn't working on my BlackBerry. The app was downloaded from the Amazon App Store.

    Can anyone verify? I'm running an early leak - 10.3.0.1052 and it doesn't work.

    Hey everyone.. I know this is a bit of a dead forum, but wanted to pass along an update.

    We just got our echo this afternoon having fun with it so far... but found that the Q10 running the most recent leak isn't able to run the app, it just dies before fully loading. I also attempted to run the web interface via browser but haven't had luck so far with that method either.

    The app also dies on my passport before fully loading.

    I downloaded Echo from Snap to test on my Passport running 10.3.1.1450 and it crashed the first time I opened it but has been working after that.

    Also I didnt need to sign in to either, maybe because I'm signed into the amazon app store already.

    Hmm I'll have to give it another try this evening to see if I can get it to stay active. I got my copy from Snap as well.

    Are you finding the echo to be worth 99/199 dollars?

    To be honest you can do with out however it depends your usage.

    Personally 100 for a bluetooth speaker with pretty good quality was worth it to me, the added functionality is really the icing.

    We mainly use it to quickly add items to our shopping list, set timers for when we are cooking, and music.

    The plus is that they can easily add features in the future since its software based.

    Just for the speaker alone it was worth the $99.

    I was able to get the Echo app to work on my Passport after 4 crashes and now it works just fine. Strange.
