Karotz hits the US, has a lot of catching up to do on Twitter, Facebook

After a rather graphic trip to the FCC, we suspected that Nabaztag's more pronounceable, if largely aesthetically identical successor Karotz was slated for arrival here in the US any day now. The time has finally come. The WiFi-enabled lagomorph is now available on our shores, bringing with it boatload of friendly connectivity, including Facebook and Twitter integration and the ability to send messages, audio files and pokes directly to the rabbit. And if you really want to get your friends' attention from afar, you can move its ears and change its colors remotely. You can pick up one now for $130 from Karotz's site and a number of online retailers. Video of the rainbow-eared white rabbit in action after the jump.
