Philips Bodygroom Canada update

Just off the phone with Amy at Philips looking for an updated release date for the Bodygroom shaver in Canada. As reported here in mid-June, their customer service folks told me that the Canadian version of the Philips/Norelco Bodygroom "shave everywhere" electric gadget could be available here as soon as August, pending CSA approval.

Today I've been told that there is no imminent release date. Amy says they aren't even sure it's going to be sold here. She says the product was "just released" in the States, and the company is still deciding whether to sell it north of the border. Perhaps next year, she says.

She did say that the marketing people get sent a note each time someone calls and asks, which may help push them toward a product launch. The Philips Canada web site doesn't have the right number to call, but here it is, for all you hirsute gents who want to put in your own inquiries: 1-800-243-7884.
