Harman Kardon really packed their Invoke voice activated speaker quite well in the original carton. In this demo, we show how safely unboxing Microsoft Invoke speaker is done. We also cover how to get at the user docs and AC adapter. See the next picture showing the speaker, still in the sealed box, just as it arrived. It comes in a plastic bag.
Unboxing the Microsoft Invoke Cortana Smart Speaker
1. Remove the Outer Plastic Bag
The the plastic bag was taped in our case. So we just pulled apart the ends slowly. With patience, you can open the bag without ripping it.
2. Find the Seal Tape
Find it near the bottom of the box, as shown next.
3. Take Off the Round Piece of Sealing Tape to Continue Unboxing the Microsoft Invoke Speaker
Pick at it until you get a nail under it. Then, peal it from the box. We were able to pick at it to loosen an edge enough to grasp and pull it off. Tug it gently though, to avoid tearing off the box artwork.
4. Next, Lift Off the Top Part of the Box
This shows the Invoke speaker, sitting in the packing holder, as shown next.
5. Next, Lift the Invoke Out of the Holder
