Amazon echo owners now able to write reviews on Amazon

Update: as June 23rd, the general public can now pre-order Amazon Echo (at AmazonSmile: benefit a non-profit of your choice by shopping*) with an “in stock” date of July 14th.

I am just on my phone, so just a quick note on this. I got an email from Amazon today telling me that I can now review the Amazon echo on the site.

That is, perhaps, another indicator that they will open it for general public purchase soon.

The email said in part:

“Thank you for being one of Amazon Echo’s earliest customers—your input has helped shape its evolution. Now you can share your experience with other customers by leaving a review.

Always ready, connected, and fast. Just ask.

I probably won’t write a review until at least this evening, but I will be interested to see what people say.

Update: I did already write a review, and I will link to it later. Holy moley! There are already over 12,000 reviews, and it is running at 4.5 stars out of five!

Update: here is my review…and now it is 4.5 with 13,086 reviews. That is, by the way, more reviews than the Kindle Touch (but not as many as the Kindle Paperwhite 2).

* I am linking to the same thing at the regular Amazon site, and at AmazonSmile. When you shop at AmazonSmile, half a percent of your purchase price on eligible items goes to a non-profit you choose. It will feel just like shopping at Amazon: you’ll be using your same account. The one thing for you that is different is that you pick a non-profit the first time you go (which you can change whenever you want)…and the good feeling you’ll get. :) Shop ’til you help! :)

    I too am astonished by the number of reviews, and their very positive tone.

    My review (4 stars):

    Reading your headline, I thought it meant Echo owners could DICTATE their reviews!
    Maybe next year.

      Thanks for writing, rogerknights!

      It won’t surprise me if, eventually, we can dictate a lot of things to the Echo…

      • Edward Boyhan Says:

        I’ll second that dictation notion — just general note taking (or even longer stuff). Then Alexa would be a “real” personal assistant — “Alexa, take a letter” (:grin)

      • Bufo Calvin Says:

        Thanks for writing, Edward!

        Absolutely, and I think we’ll get that. It would be great for short notes, but also certainly for e-mail and texts.
