"On Monday, Facebook unveiled the $200 Portal, the first-ever consumer hardware from the world’s largest social network. The toaster-size gadget, along with a larger $350 version called Portal+, is a cross between a smart speaker, video camera and digital photo frame.

As a camera, it offers a nice upgrade to the Skype or FaceTime video chat experience many of us have on a phone or computer.
