Ever since it launched the Echo range of smart speakers, Amazon has been very creative in finding new ways to get Alexa into our lives. The big jump came a few weeks ago when she began speaking Hindi. But in one teeny weeny detail, the makers were upstaged: On this page, three weeks ago we reviewed the Lenovo smart clock, combining a smart speaker with a time display. Nothing is exclusive for long -- and now Amazon has launched a new model of its Echo dot mini speaker with an LED display that can be set to show the time or the temperature -- or serve as a kitchen timer.

In other essentials it is the same as the Dot: a 1.6-inch speaker in a chunky half kg fabric-covered body with Bluetooth and 3.5 mm audio outputs -- and the same smart, all-knowing lady responding to your commands and queries. The Echo Dot with Clock costs Rs 4999, that's just Rs 1000 more than the plain Dot.
