An Email From Caleb Brings Bad News: Pleo Delayed…Again (Video)
That’s right. I just got an email from Caleb Chung and crew from over at UGOBE, and it said that “Creating life takes time,” and also, “We have decided to delay Pleo’s arrival”!! UGOBE started back in 2003 by Caleb, hoping that they could have Pleo out by October 2006, and well, that didn’t go so well. So then they thought they could have Pleo out just in time for Christmas, but that didn’t go. So then they thought they would start pre-orders on Christmas eve and ship them out in March, 2007. When it got closer they said that they would sell them in April, but now, sadly, Pleo will not be available until Summer 2007. In their email, they said that they are:
- Improving the speakers and adding more sounds
- Adding a touch sensor under the chin
- Making Pleo look and feel more life-like
So I guess I’d rather wait and have a fully built and running Pleo than a half-built Pleo.
