Sony A-Series Walkman disappears from Sony Australia
It appears that Sony Australia has removed the A-Series from its website. When the A-Series debuted on the Hong Kong Sony website, it appeared not too long right after on the Australian Sony website. So naturally I checked the HK Sony site and their Walkman section, but it is not loading for me and it shows 0 out of 0 products found, so I am confused.
Either the removal of the A-Series from the Australian site was due to low sales or a new model is coming. There was a new A-Series but it appears it is delayed or was pushed back until September and IFA 2011 or later in the Fall season. A similar situation happened with the Sony NEX-3 successor. The new model was supposed to unveiled in early April I believe but due to the earthquake was delayed and just recently unveiled this past week.
I will venture a guess and say that the A-Series was too expensive and was selling poorly this is why it is gone from the website. But I do know that Sony is planning some product announcements in July but have no concrete information if a new A-Series is part of those debuts.
If anyone has any information regarding the new A-Series or other new unannounced Walkmans, please contact me via the contact page.
