Harman Kardon's Cortana-powered Invoke shows up on the Microsoft Store [Update]

Last December, Microsoft teased a smart speaker made by Harman Kardon, which was meant to be part of a broader line of Cortana-powered devices. Harman fully revealed it in May, christening it as the Invoke and promising availability in the fall.

Today, Twitter user and renowned Microsoft leakster WalkingCat spotted the Invoke on the Microsoft Store for $199.95. Obviously, you can't buy one just yet, as it shows that the device is out of stock, so it doesn't show a release date either. The listing shows two colors: Graphite and Pearl Silver.

The Microsoft Store provides little information that we don't already know, but it does say that those that purchase the Invoke will get six months of free Skype calling to mobile phones and landlines in the United States. That promotion will run until September 1, 2018.

Anyone that views the listing can leave a review, despite the product not being released yet. This has been the case on the Microsoft Store for some time, and it's caused issues with the rating system; for example, people would leave reviews for a product just to complain that it's not available in their region.

If you want to check out the Microsoft Store listing for the Invoke, you can find it here.

Update: The listing has since been pulled, but not before it was updated with a release date and specs.
