nabaztag just came out with a new rabbit version that has a 'belly button'. next to its normal features (e.g. ear position communication is quite impressive), the wireless bunny now is able to 'listen', allowing voice messages to be easily sent, podcasts & web radio to be played etc. it now can also RFID-wise 'sniff' physical objects & react to them (for instance, holding door keys in front of it will urge it to send "I'm home" messages to your friends).

as an 'old generation' nabaztag owner, I can only welcome its increased intelligence & the extended sound features. actually, my ambient display rabbit is quite funny & useful, if it only could withhold itself of loudly announcing the arrival of spam email messages during some meetings...

Glad you dig old-school nabz...

The new one should be shipping to the UK within a week and to the US soon after.

PS - if you get personalized email alerts, you can tell Nabaztag to announce only messages going into certain inboxes... i.e. not spam.

I'm a 1st gen nabaztagger as well, and I found that after the update yesterday my bunny has been blinking orange?

What features do you find you're using yours for? I use mine for telling the time / weather and that's it.

engtech, I also like the email warning feature (for low frequency email accounts, that is), and we are trying to set up a 'secret' ear position language between some colleagues (handy for 'disturbing' people ambiently).

unfortunately, the need to create an account for external people to send (spoken) text messages, is a hassle that withhold many friends of using it more frequently as a message bank.
