Microsoft pulls Invoke listing after showing release date and specs

Tonight, it's just you, me, and Cortana

Earlier today, Microsoft leakster WalkingCat discovered that Harman Kardon's upcoming Cortana-powered smart speaker has a listing in the Microsoft Store. Aside from pricing of $199.95 and a promotion that offers six months of free Skype calling to mobile phones and landlines, it didn't tell us much that we didn't already know.

Since then, the page has been taken down, but in that brief period of a couple of hours, more information was added to it. For one thing, the release date was shown as October 22, so you obviously won't have to wait very long to get one.

The listing was also updated with the device's specs:

Rated power 40W
Frequency response 60-20kHz (-6dB)
Speakers woofer 1.75" (45mm) x 3
Dome tweeter 0.5" (13mm) x 3
Bluetooth version 4.1
Power supply 19V/2A
Power cable length 47 in (1.2m)
Wireless network 802.11b/g/n/ac (2.4GHz/5GHz)
Dimensions (DxH) 4.2 x 9.5 in (107 x 242mm)
Weight 2.3 lbs (1kg)
Supported audio formats AAC, MP3, Vorbis, FLAC, WMA, WAV

With the listing in the Microsoft Store ready to go and a release date that's two and a half weeks from now, it can't be long until Microsoft formally announces this.
