Andy, I ask why should I buy an Echo now as opposed to if and when the product works robustly as whatever it is supposed to be. It is a beta calibre product today, no more. That does not add value for me currently.
When it works as intended whatever that is, whenever that is. I will buy at least one. If I find it to work better than expected I might buy a second one. I currently have an HD300 and an HP X280n.....
I understand that I must be naive and uninformed to think that a number of years down the road from the release of those devices I should expect more in a single product that those above mentioned devices provide separately. Ceton may very well be constrained legally but they should be up front and tell us we are all in dreamland Give us the hard fact, stop beating around the bush. We should not have to wait for the high priest to come down again with another prophetic State of the Echo missive complete with incense and mumurs of mysterious ports of Android.
My life isn't ruined because the Echo is going to only have WME functionality when it is grownup. I am not sure that is worth a premium price without any premium features though. Ceton can't have it both ways. It is either fish or fowl. Why don't they just be blunt about it and we can all stop about 90 percent of the message traffic in this thread.
