Amazon Prime Day kicks off at midnight, but Amazon has just shoved out a load of deals on its own devices 12 hours early. It also has a 10-hour battery life and is Alexa-enabled, so it can work similarly to an Echo Show in a slimmer, more portable, and more versatile package.

Here's some of the gaming deals that you can get right now, although at the time of writing they're not directly associated with Prime Day; more of those are expected to appear from tomorrow. Even at its full price, it's affordable so you can bring the power of Alexa to any room in the house without spending a fortune. The most significant difference between the Dot and the Echo is the size and price. You can also use the Assistant to search a product on Amazon using the in-app camera, similar to Google Lens. That's where Alexa comes in. The 3rd generation (this is the newest model) Echo Dot can also control your smart home devices to adjust the temperature, turn on lights, and more using your voice. If you say no, your helpful shopping sidekick bot will continue reading the next deal. After one year, your subscription will automatically renew every month starting at $2.99/month plus tax and you can cancel any time. Admittedly, it's not as premium as the updated Kindle Paperwhite, but it's still a good e-reader. Find all now active deals on the Amazon Prime Day page. You can find the daily discounts on Ebay's Deals page.

Speaking about the scam, Raj Samani, Chief Scientist and Fellow at McAfee said: "Amazon Prime Day is a minefield for shoppers and presents a huge opportunity for cybercriminals to take advantage of unaware Brits".
