It’s been pulled already. Something about interfering with Notes functionality. Only the on-line demo. is available at the Panda site.

Cool idea though…

It would be great if it had more than 300 phrases I think.

Great idea…I’d buy an Italian version if I had one.

Perhaps they should do an American version for us Brits!?!?

Actually, the notes functionality issue was resolved.  Users should just be aware that installing Talking Panda will create a numbered backup of your current notes, accessible when the iPod is mounted.  So, no fear, nothing lost, and the site is fully live again.  Also, there are plans to add at least 6 more languages by the end of the year, including Italian, so keep an eye out.
