Any Updates on Technology?

For all those out there better "in the know" than I, can you help me?

I have a doctor's appointment soon and I want to discuss starting on a pod/pump/cgm. I've been doing a lot of research, reading a lot of blogs and discussions on here.

1. I'm curious about if/when OmniPod will be releasing a new, slimmer model.
2. Has anyone received any updates about the Solo Minipump? Release dates, costs, etc?
3. I know the Dexcom Seven+ is relatively new and that Animas is working with them to integrate a cgm with the Ping--does anyone know of any time frame for these changes?

Pumping/podding would be an adjustment, and of course I want to make sure that I get my money's worth. I want to see if it would be worth it to get the process started this year (as my deductible is already 1/4 paid) or wait for newer technology next year maybe.

Any thoughts/advice?? Any reps out there that can give more information?

if you haven't done so already, please join our Omnipod Group

Thanks, Marie, I just joined.

Or how about the Tslim by Tandem? Any word on when that is expected to release? That one literally makes me drool over how cool it looks....
