    Putting this in Off Topic, because I didn't do any research as to whether this device runs the Android OS, but I had to share this.


    I have to say, I'd love to have one of these, but think I'd only use it for some sort of home phone. I can't see carrying this around all day everyday like I do a regular phone, but I think it'd be a fun device to have around

    Hello Robo.

    I think it's pretty neat. Seems like something for kids though in my opinion.

    Kids or not, it'd be fun to have a little robot wandering around.

    Meh...I can see this for a cute little thing around the office...or home..or as a gift..but it looks fragile(of course) and i agree its not something I'd want to carry around all day.

    They didn't show what happened 2 mins after the baby grabbed it lol

    I want one! Except I can see myself telling it to shut up. Reminds me of the teddy ruxpin reading teddy bear.

    My wife wants one, only if it speaks English, which she swears it will be able to do. Haha

    I watched again..and the voice...ugh...get Peter cullen to do the voice over LOL..actually the voice interface in a different voice please...and the protector feature..would make me buy a phone with those options...the part they're leaving out is the "OK Google now" type catch phrase..or they've found another way for it to monitor and not burn through all of its battery...

    I can see this falling ...A LOT. If it stands up on tables and walks to be cute ...well...I can imagine some spill will happen.
