ConnectR : iRobot's Ongoing Experiment
It has been almost a year since iRobot introduced ConnectR to the world and still there is no final product to sell. Recently iRobot has been sending E-mail, to a select group of iRobot domestic robot owners, that a field test is imminent. Does this field test signify that iRobot will introduce ConnectR in early 2009? It all depends on many variables (market conditions, demand, costs, design, production, etc.) and how it can compete with the sexy looking WowWee Rovio. I hope that iRobot releases ConnectR; competition always will benefit the consumer with better and economical technologies. Let us know if you are part of this research group or have received iRobot's E-mail.
