From TechCrunch - November 10, 2017

A number of customers who pre-ordered Amazons new Echo Spot smart alarm clock are now being told the products ship date has been pushed back. Emails sent to customers inform them that unfortunately, the release date for the item listed below has changed, and then provides a new delivery estimate based on that revised date.
