I have spoke to Insulet several times and the current date is late February/early March. I plan on going box to box with the pods until they are ready!
I am actually excited that the new PDMs will be able to be further away from the pod to deliver insulin (it is my son who is diabetic) AND that the canula is going to be colored (pink, I think).
You should definitely call Omnipod and give them your email as they told me that was how they would let me know about the new pods.
Canula is blu, there is a pink square under the shell that signs if the insertion spring has pushed the canula underskin.
