Facebook slashes price, size of Portal video call gadget



Facebook is slashing the price and the size of the Portal, its screen and camera-equipped gadget for making video calls with friends and family.

A smaller version will now cost $129 and will come with an 8 inch display. A larger version with a 10 inch display will cost $179.

Last year’s models were bigger and cost more — $199 for a 10.1 inch display and $349 for at 15.6 inch screen.

A new screenless Portal device that attaches to a television set will be $149. All three go on sale in October.

Facebook is not saying how many Portals it’s sold. But it’s not clear how many people want a Facebook-branded smart camera in their homes, given the company’s history of privacy problems.
