NXT 2.0 April Fools???

/ 2 April 2007

Here’s an odd post about an NXT 2.0 coming in a year. This can’t come true partly because of the RCX’s example of 1.0 to 2.0 time, but if it does given the new features I’ll be quite impressed. Some highlights are WiFi instead of bluetooth, MP3 player, 1 GB of on board memory, and GPS. Just from that list it’s hard to imagine that Lego will turn upside-down their current NXT 1.0 and create this system in a year. This has to be an April Fool since it was posted yesterday and it just doesn’t seem right to have such a short period of time between the 1.0 and 2.0 releases, and so much to change and get added. The problem would be that the 2.0 system would be twice the cost of the 1.0 system. Can any of you find out how true (if at all :) ) this post is? Just add comments to this blog if you can confirm anything.
