Amazon evento septiembre 25

Amazon has let loose its annual deluge of product introductions. The company unveiled more than a dozen new devices, services and technology initiatives at a launch event held at its Seattle headquarters on Wednesday. They ranged from the premium Echo Studio smart speaker to the multifaceted Amazon Smart Oven kitchen appliance to the Echo Buds

 earbuds. Though the products were diverse, there was an unmistakable unifying theme: Everything is powered by Alexa, the company's increasingly capable (and omnipresent) voice-activated assistant. 

The company also debuted the Echo Frames smart glasses and the Alexa-powered Echo Loop ring -- the first products in the Amazon's new "Day 1 Editions" program for experimental products that aren't yet generally available. We've rounded up every product that Amazon announced yesterday, most of which are available for preorder today.

Smart home

Amazon's latest kitchen appliance is a voice-activated microwave with some added skills: convection cooking, air frying and food warming. Alexa will let you know when to stir the food or when it's finished. It also has a "Scan to Cook" feature: snap a photo of the bar code on prepackaged foods (with the Alexa app or Echo Show) from Whole Foods (and others) to automatically set the oven. The Smart Oven is available for preorder, but only in the US, for now.

Amazon's new Echo Flex is a plug-in Alexa-powered smart speaker. It has an integrated USB port and optional Motion Sensor and Smart Nightlight accessories -- each priced at $15 -- that connect to the USB port. The Flex, Motion Sensor and Smart Nightlight are all available for preorder now.

Eero Wi-Fi system, $249

Amazon's upgraded Eero Wi-Fi system sports voice controls and a new dual-band radio that's useful for the wireless "backhaul" connections that send data from one Eero to another. The access points plug into power outlets in different rooms of a house to ensure everyone -- and every device -- can connect to the internet. A three-pack of Eeros now costs $249 -- down from $500 -- and you can get a single Eero router for $99. They're available now.

Ring Stick Up Cam, $100

Amazon announced a new version of the Ring Stick Up Cam, which now costs $100 -- down from $180 when it debuted in 2018. There's also a new solar-powered version that starts at $149. Both are available for preorder now.

Ring Indoor Cam, $60

Ring's first indoor camera is now the least expensive model in the lineup. For $60, you get a security camera with 1080 HD Video, two-way talk, real-time notifications and, of course, support for Alexa.

Home theater

Technically, Amazon announced this update to the original Fire TV Cube at IFA earlier in September. It's a mash-up of an Amazon Echo Dot, a Fire TV Stick 4K and a universal remote, with souped-up processing, Dolby Vision and HDR10 Plus compatibility. It's available for preorder now.

Read more about the new Fire TV Cube.

Another product introduced at IFA, this Nebula is the first sound bar with Fire TV built-in. Connect it to a TV and you can stream any Fire TV apps, no separate media streamer required. It has Alexa, but voice commands are only available by speaking into the included voice remote (which also handles TV volume and power) -- there's no hands-free, far-field-just-say-"Alexa" capability like you'll find on the Polk Command Bar or Sonos Beam. To get that you'll need to pair it with your own Echo speaker. It's available now for preorder.
