Amazon is now offering a limited RED edition of the Echo speaker. The limited edition Echo (RED) Edition can be preordered now and will be offered for a limited time only – how long exactly, Amazon does not reveal.
10 euros of the purchase price of around 100 euros of the Echo (RED) Edition goes to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS (RED). This amount will provide life-saving HIV medicines in sub-Saharan Africa for 55 days. The special model will be delivered on December 12th.
The Echo (RED) edition costs 99.99 euros as much as the normal color variants of the Echo (3rd generation). The new Amazon Echo offers the same sound in the third generation as the Echo Plus, which costs around 150 euros, but does not have the Zigbee hub and the temperature sensor of the Echo Plus.
