Amazon releases a (RED) Echo to support the fight against AIDS

Amazon has released a limited edition PRODUCT(RED) variant of the all-new Echo (2017) in the United States, with $10 from every sale going towards fighting AIDS through the Global Fund.

The (RED) Echo, which is available to pre-order for $99.99, will start shipping on Wednesday, December 6, making it the perfect (pre-)Christmas gift for those looking to add a hint of crimson to their entertainment setup.

This isn’t the first time that (RED) has teamed up with a consumer electronics manufacturer to support the fight against AIDS. It’s previously worked with Apple to release a slew of products, ranging from iPhones to cases.

Announced alongside the Echo Plus back in October, the second-generation Echo features a refined cylindrical design, a much-requested auxiliary-out port and a new Dolby signal processor for improved sound quality.

As we noted in our comprehensive review, it isn’t worth upgrading to the Echo (2017) from original Echo – in which case, we’d advise folk looking to support (RED) to donate what they can spare directly to the cause.
