Sounds interesting, what does it cost?

The SM130 houses a 16-bit three-axis gyroscope and a 12-bit three-axis accelerometer, sounds good but what does it cost and what are the drift numbers?  This might be a nice robotic upgrade for an IMU if the cost and features are better than the current offerings.  With some of the cheaper MEMs they have a lot of drift/noise and this limits their usefulness, still they are used due to low cost and some tricks to "re-calibrate" on the fly.  Looking forward to hearing more of the details.

Sorry, I don't have any other specs and it seems too new to have a data sheet on the Bosch site yet.
