Korean "Ubiquitous Robotic Companion"

Without a manipulator arm or hand, this robot companion by South Korean mechatronics manufacturer ED looks no more use- or powerful than Robofriend by Tom Heike but I suspect the development has been a bit pricier.
U-ROBO (or ED-7270) uses RFID, a touch screen and features voice recognition.
No info on release date or pricing, but apparently the robot has been showing at a fair recently.
