Chumby Posts Launch Plans and Features

Chumby posted launch plans and final product features on their corporate blog yesterday, complete with an announcement that the device will be the first device to run Flash Lite 3.

The device will cost $180 fully-delivered, no fees or extra subscriptions, which I think is brilliant. Similar devices, such as the Nabaztag/tag Rabbit cost about the same, but require a $7/month service fee to do anything custom.

If anyone from Chumby reads this -- I'd love to be on the list mentioned in your blog for those who will get a chance to buy the initial release!

A Nabaztag costs $189.00… just thought you’d want to know.

@Zim — Not sure where that came from, sorry about that! I have fixed the price in the post. I believe the issue was that I’m planning on buying the pair of Nabaztags from your online store, and _those_ would be double the cost of a Chumby.

The service fee, however, is still required for additional functionality, which was the point of the post. It probably won’t stop me from getting the pair of rabbits, but it is nice to not have to worry about the monthly fee.
