The long awaited Pleo dinosaur robot is about to become a reality. Earlier today Ugobe sent out email notification to it's mail list subscribers that pre-orders are officially open. There are only 2,000 units available for pre-order, so our guess is that they will sell out immediately to fans, and to speculators - though Ugobe has limited pre-orders to a maximum of 2 units per customer.
The bad news - the quoted price is $349, much higher than we expected, though the company claims that the higher price has enabled them to make some improvements in the robots quality and user experience. They have also launched a new Pleo website at www.pleoworld.com.
