The Amazon Echo is now available for purchase from Best Buy for the first time. Staples became the first 3rd-party retailer to sell the Echo, followed by several others a few months later, but now it’s finally available through the U.S.’s largest consumer electronics retailer. You can find the Amazon Echo both in-store on Best Buy’s shelves and available for purchase online through Best Buy’s website. Since the Echo is currently out of stock through Amazon, the timing couldn’t be better. Considering they were just released today, it’s no surprise that the Amazon Tap or Echo Dot are not yet available thorugh 3rd-party retailers like Best Buy, but I expect them to be available soon, especially considering the Echo Dot’s packaging comes with a retail hanger slot built in.
