    i would buy one if it was cheap... a real dog is too difficult and expensive to keep in college

    I see some serious rivalry between my iPod and this dog happening here... The fight for the ownership of Xcat. When music devices clash....

    Hopefully this thing will be less expensive then an AIBO.

    10 to 1, unless you live in Japan you might never see this in the states. :(

    Japan is home to so many great little gadgets that never see the light of day here.

    That's pretty cool, but I like this one better.
    I know it doesn't tie into the iPod, but it is cool.

    I read an article about this somewhere that said it would be avaible in April and that Hasbro may sell them in North America.

    and a robot dog would show so much love and companionship. It'd be in your closet in a week. I have a puppy in university, it's not so bad, I am in an Apartment and not a dorm though.

    Cute, it's something that an owner could love. Interesting, looks like it will be released around my B-day. What a great toy, also will have the availability to connect an iPod.
