Where's Roomba 1080? Jesus

Postby 1080808 » March 27th, 2018, 4:36 am

I thought they would announce something in 2017, then CES 2018 but no...

So wtf is going on with the new 980 replacement? I want other robot features like good camera that can see at night, better corner cleaning, less sound, etc.

Oh... No, it's the replacement for the Scooba!
It has a "clean water tank" and a "wine tank"...

Deleted inappropriate post. A1, I deleted yours since it was no longer in context.

Often the best place to find information is the investor section of iRobot's site. From their Q4 2017 earnings report:

In 2018, we plan to capitalize on the incremental investments we made in 2017 with the introduction of new products in the second half of the year.

Useful, but disappointing! I was hoping to get a 9xx in the next couple months. Might as well put on the brakes and see what the new stuff looks like. Hopefully they’ll release in the summer.

Thanks, dabinat, good advice for futurecasting.
