GoPro delays its Karma drone till this vacation
GoPro’s Karma drone was due out the primary half of this yr, however we’re already into the fifth month and it is nowhere to be discovered. That is as a result of, based on the corporate’s newest monetary statements, it has been delayed. Shock! The corporate now says that the Karma will not hit till this vacation season. Within the subsequent six months, any variety of issues might occur. As an example, we stated that AirDog — one other comply with-behind drone — was the corporate that GoPro wanted to beat or purchase once we checked it out earlier this yr. That agency might probably launch a brand new mannequin that blows the Karma out of the water by November.
The busiest purchasing season of the yr is six months away, however know-how strikes extremely quick. Now GoPro might discover itself in an unenviable place of being surpassed by cheaper competitors, seeing how final we knew, the Karma was going to be priced between $500 and $1,000. The opposite risk is that Karma might be outdated earlier than it even hits the cabinets. For GoPro’s sake, let’s hope that does not occur — something is feasible in half-a-yr’s time, although.
