(Pocket-lint) - Amazon has slashed the prices in some of its Echo Show models in the Prime Day sales, meaning you can get your hands on these devices for even less. 

Prices have been reduced on Echo Show 1st gen models and there are some nice discounts to be had.

Both the Echo Show 5 and larger Echo Show 8 are available with savings of £40 on Amazon UK:

If you're after the very latest from Amazon, there's even a discount on the new Echo Show 8, which is more powerful with a better camera:

The Amazon Echo Show 5 is a smaller version of the original Echo Show smart assistant with a screen. As such there's full Alexa support, so it has the full range of functions, but without taking up so much space. It's ideal for a desk or small table.

Amazon has also dropped the price of the Echo Show 8, slightly larger, and with better sound quality. Again, you still have all the functionality of Alexa, so this will answer questions, control your smart home and play you music, as well as offering Alexa Calling.

In the US, the tiny-but-brilliant Echo Show 5 smart display will set you back just $59.99. That's a 25 per cent saving on the usual price of $79.99, but Amazon hasn't started all its Prime Day sales yet, so the price could go lower.

Amazon has dropped the price of the Echo Show 8 to $89.99, a decent 18 per cent - but again, we're still waiting to see if these devices are discounted further.

You can also video call over Skype or listen to Spotify, Amazon Music, TuneIn Radio and Apple Music and a whole lot more.
