Alexa is coming to take over the world, one speaker at a time. Fabriq was one of the first third-party companies to bake Amazon’s virtual assistant into its Bluetooth speaker. At $50, it’s the same price as the Amazon Echo Dot;but with a battery and better sound, it offers more. If you’re looking for a low-cost way to take advantage of Alexa’s features in a small, portable speaker, the Fabriq could be for you.
At 3.15 x 3.15 x 3.15 inches, the cylindrical Fabriq is smaller than the $129 Amazon Tap but larger than the Echo Dot. It’s easy to carry in one hand, and thanks to its rechargeable battery, you can take it with you.
If the Echo’s staid design isn’t for you, you can choose from one of three colors for the Fabriq: red-and-black “jack plaid”; Earl Grey, a gray pattern; and Splat, which is blue with white, yellow and pink accents. I tested the jack plaid model.
