Microsoft and Harman/Kardon has announced the release of home smart-columns Invoke with Cortana.
What is known
The novelty is positioned as competitor to the Amazon Echo and Google Home and appearance very similar to the brainchild of Amazon. Invoke is a medium size cone with a turning mechanism in the form of a ring on the top of the device. That part of acoustics is backlit by the blue circle and resembles the logo of the voice assistant Cortana. It will be useful to owner to search for information over the network, enable or disable music, chatting over Skype and many other things, which trained assistant Microsoft. On assurances of developers, the dynamics of the “smart” acoustics arranged in a circle, so the sound is projected 360 degrees. That’s why it doesn’t matter where the user will put the column, because it will be audible in any case.
Release date and price
Microsoft and Harman/Kardon made the usual announcement, but were given neither detailed specifications nor the price nor the exact release date of smart-column Invoke. It is now known that it will fall. More no data.
