Yesterday I talked to a Omnipod Clinical Specialist, and she told me that Insulet is working in a new pod. This new model will be smaller than the actual pod and you will be able to use it with the new and old PDM model. She told me that this is supposed to be out in the market before summer 2010.

Thanks for that update...Hope it works comes true.. :-)

I will love a smaller pod! Thanks for sharing.
A smaller pod would be fabulous!!! I pretty luck because I have to wear a lab coat at work and people don't usually see the pod, but when I'm not wearing the lab coat I am getting sort of annoyed with everyone asking what that large lump under my clothes are!!!! I hope it comes out sooner rather than later!!
integrated CGM would be sweet!
We were told the new one is waiting on FDA approval and is 42% smaller than the current model. We were told the follow up model would contain both insulin and CGM in the same pod. Guess we'll see hopefully soon.
YEAH, I can't wait!
I would love a smaller pod integrated with a CGM. But I'm wondering......does Insulet already have the software ready to install in the 2nd generation PDM that many of us just ordered? Or are they going to bring out a 3rd generation PDM that will display the results of the integrated CGM along with the functions of the 2nd generation PDM?

I'm guessing that the 2nd gen is hardware-ready and will only need software download for CGM. I wonder whether they will offer the option to pick Dexcom or Nav from the get-go or whether they'll roll one out before the other. I'm assuming the CGM sensor will be separate from pod.
Yes the sensor will be separate from the pod an it will be Dexcom.
I was told that the 2nd generation PDM will only need a program download and you can choose either Dexcom or Navigator. Also I was told the CGM will be separate from the pod.
does smaller pod mean it's going hold less insulin? hope not.
Insulet says, still 200 units.
