ASUS held an event in Taiwan today announcing the availability of its Zenbo robot. From January 1st, customers in the country will be able to pick up one for between $620 and $780, depending on configuration. Engadget Chinese editor-in-chief Richard Lai wrote many words in his dispatch from the launch, including some that detail new features coming to Zenbo. You should read those if you want to know more about it, but I have more important things on my mind.

At the robot's launch event in Taiwan, Asus decided it was apt to ring in the holiday season by getting a choir of Zenbos to perform Mariah Carey's Christmas classic, "All I Want For Christmas Is You."

As anyone that's been to a karaoke bar in December before will tell you, it's almost always a terrible idea to try and compete with Mariah. We'll leave you to judge how it got on:
