Amazon's internet of things-friendly (IoT) Echo range is one of tech's potential Christmas favourites in 2016. A neat addition to smart homes, Amazon's personal assistant AI, Alexa, has been turning heads with its flashy TV adverts and the promise of music, calendar reminders, train times and even takeaways with just a few simple voice commands.

As today (25 November) is officially Black Friday, there are a number of deals kicking about, including some great discounts on the Amazon Echo speaker and its cheaper tiny sibling – the Amazon Echo Dot – which connects to any speaker you already own that offers Bluetooth or 3.5mm connectivity.

Black Friday: Best iPad deals and discounts from John Lewis, Currys, Apple and more

Black Friday 2016: Best eBay deals on smartphones, GoPros, games and more

Black Friday 2016: Best Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus contract and sim-free deals
