Omnipod second generation in Europe and new Countries to Ypsomed

There's a press release on 11 april (link) which states:

Ypsomed will become the exclusive distributor of the OmniPod insulin pump in a total of 22 countries, including several additional countries in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia.
......
"We have recently sent Ypsomed their initial shipment of the next generation OmniPod for sale in Europe where it has CE Mark clearance...."

I'm wondering if anybody as an insiders view and can tell which are these countries ?

Here in Italy we are waiting omnipod from so long ....

Hi there. I am told we should have the OmniPod ii by May

We "who" ?
Do you mean in the USA ?

He means the European Community. He personally is in Britain. I don't know about Italy specifically. Your best bet would be to call/e-mail Ypsomed directly and ask them.

Hi Gil, you going to friends for life?? We will be there in Orlando!! Hope you can come and meet up! Kennedy is a little down on diabetes camp, but she's positive about a Marriott resort with 6 swimming pools...

I'd like to see what else I can do to help you with your company...

AND by the way, do you know the new features of the next gen pod?? I figured you might...

super bolus?
Insulin lookback?
insulin timer? ( to estimate time to less than 150 for a correction)

etc...
etc...

Hi Natalie,

Pancreum (and I) are in the San Francisco Bay area now (Fremont, CA). So I won't be at the event in Orlando. I wish Kennedy the very best.

Unfortunately, I don't have any info on the new pod features. They don't have FDA approval yet, so they won't be available in the U.S. for a while.

Cheers,
Gil

Great! You moved to Bay area?? Nice MOVE! I will intro you to all the silicon valley folks I know, I advise @doximity and was advisor last year for @healthtap and know some folks there who are very connected! This is going to be a great move, I don't think you will have any regrets! Best, Natalie

I was told May/June for the US.

OOH! by who??? I can't get anything out of these omnipod people, they have to be tight lipped... Investor side?

The new pods still haven't received clearance from the FDA here in the US so I highly doubt we'll see them in May or June.

We won't see them till 2014 if lucky.... so don't hold your breath.

You are one which does think positive isn't it ? ;-)

The world needs both dreamers and realest.
