If my home automation system were compatible with Echo I could see a use case for this.

Love my Echo.  I got a large battery powered Bluetooth party speaker that I am going to hook the Dot to.  It has something like 70 hours of battery life and has a USB out that I can power the Dot with. Eventually I plan to get into some home automation and plan to use equipment that works with Echo, then the Dot will get located in our bedroom.

How does the Dot communicate with an Echo of at all? Or is the Dot just a smaller form factor with same functionality?

I thought it is the voice intelligence, Alexa backend etc.  without a speaker.

Mine arrives on Thursday so look for at least an unboxing.  Probably chat about it a bit on HSS Podcast.  Jim is getting one as well and I bet SmartHome HQ Podcast will talk about it too.

Dot is just an Echo without the speaker and has an external speaker connection.  So hooked up to external speakers Dot is just another Echo. 

 

Mine is also showing up Thursday.
