Amazon Alexa headed to PCs this year, challenges Cortana

The new Vuzix Blade with Alexa is getting the most attention of any of their previous products.

The preference Americans have shown for Alexa over Google Assistant isn't founded in the products' respective technical performances, however.

Amazon is set to use CES 2018 to deliver commercial grade augmented-reality glasses with Amazon's Alexa voice assistant built in. The glasses will be available starting sometime during the second quarter, priced at $1,000.

Talking with Bloomberg, Vuzix confirmed that its pair of AR glasses will be the first with Amazon's Alexa voice assistant integration. Over the past 50 years, we've built more than 30 million cars and trucks in North America, where we operate 14 manufacturing plants (10 in the U.S.) and directly employ more than 44,000 people (more than 34,000 in the U.S.). The latest development is a lightweight solution of the AVS Device SDK that the company launched previous year to let OEMs start integrating Alexa into their Bluetooth-supported connected devices.

Balochistan assembly elects Mir Abdul Quddus Bizenjo as Chief Minister
The political crisis began with Bizenjo submitting a no-confidence motion against the chief minister on January 2. On Friday, Bizenjo submitted his nomination papers, which were proposed and seconded by members of allied parties.

An Amazon spokesman has said that they are; "excited about the potential of the glasses and the ability to bring Alexa to customers in a new way".

And with the recent reveal of the Alexa Mobile Accessory Kit, Amazon is clearly aiming to get Alexa into more wearable and portable devices beyond smartphones. Toyota announced the news at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada. We'll know more about the company's new range of laptops in the coming weeks, so stay tuned for updates. Vuzix's chief executive officer Paul Travers recognized the disadvantages of such a high price point but did say that the company was expecting to shave the figure by as much as 50 percent by next year.

In the future, however, Dobbs thinks Amazon's first-to-market advantage will fade and the gap between the Echo and Google Home will close.
