Facebook has plans to release tablet border device and smart speaker. What will it offer such equipment and what can it be used for?

Marek Zuckenberg's company has an idea for new equipment. This will be something that came out of a 15 "touch screen touch screen and smart speaker. The device is intended to be used to conduct video calls via Facebook. It seems that with the size of the screen so far familiar with laptops, Facebook is gearing up to create a new niche of communication products. The device will have to compete with Apple devices – HomePod and Google – Google Home. It follows that a kind of voice assistant would be needed to handle it – and it will actually happen. Facebook employs former Apple employees. Their task is to create a voice control system. Such devices point to a new direction in which your business wants to push Mark Zuckenberg – apart from software, they want to design and produce the hardware.

The device has reportedly cost around $ 100 . If that were the case, then Facebook would have rivaled it before it even appeared. A similar tactic used Amazon once to sell Kindle ebook readers below cost of production. Amazon, however, made money on the content, so he could afford to do so. What would Facebook earn? I think the presence of a large screen will allow you to use the social network site in addition to just video calling. So that the company could continue to make money on ads displayed while browsing Facebook. The housing of the device is to be made of aluminum alloy and the screen is to be provided by LG Display . What do you think of such a device? Will it be a sensible hardware or just an oversized tablet with limited capabilities? Source: Bloomberg
