The company has also pledged to create 5,000 new permanent roles this year across the country, bringing its full time workforce to 24,000. AFTNews has spotted the Echo Look before it was announced, but mistook it for a security camera type device back in March. However, Amazon would like to maintain their stronghold on the markets of speakers-with-assistants. The device could be launched as soon as this month, according to a CNET report late last month. However, following that leak, popular tipster and a man known for numerous leaks over the years, Evan Blass posted a high res image of the Amazon Echo Touchscreen device on Twitter.

We've known for a while that Amazon is developing a touchscreen version of the Echo speaker, but it was hard to imagine the form factor.

Below that display is a prominent speaker. Amazon already has its Fire OS and it could work well with either a touchscreen or otherwise.

The new device is supposed have the codename Knight. It also features upcoming events or plans, and gives tips to the users about things that they can try out in voice commands.

This story, "We've gotten our first look at an Echo with a built-in screen, and it's straight out of 2005" was originally published by PCWorld. Apparently found lurking on Amazon's servers, the teeny tiny photo doesn't really tell us much, but it tells us enough: Amazon envisions an Echo device that offers its own display, which could greatly expand user options when it comes to Alexa. Stay tuned with us for more updates on this new Amazon Echo touchscreen device.
