The City DC26: Dyson Releases Its Smallest Vacuum Cleaner

Well it looks like this cute little vacuum cleaner, which seems perfect for modern urban environments, will be released in the UK. This can mean only one thing: it will be available soon in the US.

About six months ago, this teeny Dyson vacuum cleaner was spotted in Japan. The only thing that discouraged us was the price. When converted into USD, it was over $800! Luckily, Dyson is going to release this cute little vacuum cleaner, which it has named The City DC26 and it won't be available for $800.

It weighs just about 7.7lbs and it's small enough to fit in your hand. However, it's supposed to be almost as powerful as its bigger brother, sucking up a lot of muck. The City DC26 has been in development for over 5 years. James Dyson admits that it took that long to miniaturize the components of the Dyson vacuum cleaner.

It will be on sale in the UK this weekend at the Dyson online store and will cost $400. It's going to be available in the satin blue color. That's still a bit much in our opinion. Also, there's no word yet when it will be released here in the US.
