    Did you know that Minimed just came out with a Pink pump? Our rep said it came out on Friday!! Kylie loves pink, but since we didn't know we went with purple. Well, our rep is seeing if we can swap. :) She'd love it! :)

    Just didn't know if you all knew...

    That will be cool for the little girls! I remember the excitement when Animas got their pink pumps. :)

    I just checked MM's press releases. Nothing yet....

    I assume this is a new pump, and not just a new color???

    It's not completely new although they made some small modifications. The Med. rep didn't say it was a new pump (as in its functions) but rather that "pink just came out on Friday." So to be honest? I'm not sure! :) It was neat though. A matte pink not the shiny metalic pink of animas. I thought it was a skin like the kind you can buy for a cell phone at first.

    So you actually saw it? Cool!

    Unfortunately, in our house, unless they come out with one that has the Batman symbol on it, the reaction will be much less excited, LOL!

    I knew the pink was coming and it would be coming out very close to when molly would be getting hers. They had offered us to get a loaner pump until it came out since it was so close but Molly wasn't interested in pink..go figure!

    Cool!! :cool: Isabella is so going to want it now. Maybe I can swap because the screen on ours is really scratched and difficult to read. I wonder if they would let me exchange for the new pink one? I'm getting on the phone now with my rep to see if she can do the exchange without much difference. We'll see. :rolleyes:

    Yep, I saw it today too! Our MM rep had one with her. It is exactly the same as the other 522/722s just in a new color.

    I wonder if you replace your pump will they let you swap a color?

    I switched from clear to purple when my pump had a crack about a year ago. Not sure how it would work with the new pink, but it wouldn't hurt to ask!

    I am not sure if I like that shade of pink:eek:. Almost reminds me of like a salmon color.

    Does it look like that in person?

    Ooh no, I don't like it either. I'd much prefer a hot pink colour. I'd like to see it in person also, the pics on the site there aren't completely accurate to what they look like in real life, the smoke looks way too light in that pic, barely darker than the clear. Interesting that they changed the button colour also.
    If anyone gets it, can you show us a photo, pretty please :)
