Pleo - Updated Release Date
Pictures, Videos, and more Information on Pleo.
UGOBE has recently updated their release date for the Pleo. The original release date was the third quarter of this year. That date has been pushed back slightly to the beginning of fourth quarter of this year (2006). A little later, but still plenty of time before that all important holiday season.
For those of you that are curious about Pleo's background as a real life dinosaur, Pleo is modeled after a one week old baby Camarasaurus, which means "chambered lizard". The Camarasaurus is a gentle herbivore from the Jurassic period of Earth's history. It is interesting that Pleo has already achieved fame enough to be noted in Wikipedia's page for the Camarasaurus.
