The new Echo Dot has started to ship, a few weeks in advance of the shipping of the new Google Home product. There are a few accessories that we’ll likely see come out en masse in the coming months for this new version:
- Speakers designed for the Echo Dot. Some will make the Echo Dot look like a souped up Echo (or exactly like the Echo). Others will have a place to hold the Dot or have channels to hold the wires.
- Cases for the Dot. Maybe these will make the Dot more suited for the kitchen (or bathroom) with splash resistant covers. Maybe these will also keep wires coming to / from the Dot more organized.
- Dot holders and mounts. These will be designed to help keep the Dot on the ceiling, walls, or in inconspicuous places. I’m waiting for one that will make a teddy bear look like Iron Man.
There’s going to be a whole after market for the Dot with its success.
