Rabbit OS software update for Rabbit R1

The Rabbit r1, the popular handheld AI gadget, just received a significant software update. This update integrates many AIs into one device including OpenAI’s latest ChatGPT-4o model. ChatGPT integration is the most awaited feature by all R1 users, which could actually make the Rabbit device usable and more responsive.

The latest update not only enhances existing features but also introduces new capabilities powered by advanced AI integrations like ChatGPT, Perplexity for AI search, and Wolfram for complex mathematics, making the Rabbit r1 even more indispensable.
