    A longer version of the release appeared last week, here http://www.tmcnet.com/usubmit/2006/03/16/1465504.htm

    Which includes Lego quotes:
    “Since it was announced at Consumer Electronics Show in January,
    consumer buzz and retailer demand for MINDSTORMS NXT has been
    overwhelming,” said Joanna Gale, LEGO MINDSTORMS brand manager. “Because
    we are thrilled that the community has expressed such early interest in
    being part of the next generation of LEGO consumer robotics, our online
    pre-sales program provides our most enthusiastic fans access to the
    first units to roll off of the production line.”

    I signed up and they sent me an email stating that they picked the 100 people. I wasn’t one of the hundred.

    Hi Chris -

    Your best bet would be to check out the official FIRST LEGO League pages on the 2006 challenge here:


    As far as the NXT goes, the official LEGO Mindstorms site has some basic info on the new NXT here:
