I just received an email from Chumby Industries, informing that the Chumby is now shipping to a select group of customers. If you want to buy one, sign up on the store page.

Meanwhile, while you’re waiting for your Chumby to be delivered, or waiting for it to become available, you can play around with the Chumby-on-the-Net. Below is an example of the Chumby I just created:

It looks like a really nice combination of digital photo frame and web widgets. There are widgets to display your Flickr photos, weather info, stock alerts, etc. The widgets take turns on the display, based on their settings. To have the Chumby operate, you need a Wifi connection and (unfortunately) an AC outlet.

The Chumby ships for a little under $200.
