Bethesda is selling a new and improved Pip-Boy 3000

Bethesda has pre-sale orders available for the Pip-Boy Model 3000 Mk IV, just in case you weren't able to purchase the old one. A total of 5,000 units will be made available worldwide come November 11, though you'll only be able to order one in Australia, Canada, and the U.S. The price is $350, and does not come with a copy of Fallout 4.

With a compatible smartphone connected to the Pip-Boy unit, you'll be able to make calls, access contacts, send SMS messages, and even hit up some audio files while on the move. It's all achieved thanks to Bluetooth and the on-board Pip-Boy software. Not only that, but you'll also be able to display Status, Special, and Perks screens from the game. Simply put, it's similar the model available last year, but is vastly improved.

"The Pip-Boy: Deluxe Bluetooth Edition comes with a genuine RobCo Industries stand that doubles as a charging base and more powerful speaker option when the Pip-Boy is in place. The compartment on top opens to reveal a holotape that's a USB drive. And it all ships in a Capsule-Case-inspired tin designated for Vault 111 deployment."

Will you be picking one up? Sound off in the comments!

Update: The Pip-Boy 3000 is now available for pre-order from Thinkgeek as well.
