I was alerted to The Purple Paper Paradise Blog which, brings us a brief "first look" at the Cricut Imagine based on what appear to be the very first videos released to the web.
I'll wait until we see more before commenting. But, conspicuously absent are any live demos of the machine. We HEAR about the machine in the videos; but, we don't see it actually printing and cutting. Perhaps we'll see that in later videos that get posted.
