Out of curiosity, why would someone buy this instead of Echo?

Built in collaboration with Amazon, the elegantly designed Lenovo Smart Assistant recognizes users’ voice commands and uses Alexa to conduct web searches, play music, create lists, provide calendar updates and much more.

From the Lenovo blog post: "We know that 65 percent of people around the world already use voice recognition technology on their phone, PC or tablet." Given that only 40% of the world has internet access, this statistic seems rather dubious...

Very curious the deal terms here. Why didn't they go with a neutral platform like Houndify? Is Amazon paying a referral for items purchased on Amazon through devices like this?
