The A3 is one of the biggest mistakes B&O ever made...A docking station for one specific tablet from another brand...Huh?

Shortly after the release of the A3, Apple made a new iPad with a new connector...
And nobody expect that future iPads will have the same size... So B&O would have to make a new model everytime Apple makes a new iPad...

No wonder they're desperate to get rid of the last ones...

Hä?

Wie holen die den Zuschuss wieder heraus?

Neukunden? Adressen?

Mal abwarten, ob B&O damit einverstanden war ...

H Peter the Biker,

ich denke die Mediamarkt-leute wissen was sie tun.

Es gibt mehrere möglichkeiten - vom günstig eingekauft haben, übers Werbe-budget bis zu Abschreibung.

Die haben damit jedenfalls 'Interesse'  generiert und wahrscheinlich auch neue Kunden bekommen.

Ich denke B&O wird das Wurst sein - die sind ja verkauft, und wer weiss wie viel/wenig B&O dafür bekommen haben. War ja wahrscheinlich die Restpartie. Und die werden wohl auch kaum in den B&O-Läden zu finden sein.

Hi Steffen,

They weren't that bad after all - but  I am sure that they won't make a version 2 of it,.

They have triggered attention to the brand BeoPlay - and that is not bad at all..

Many owners like them - if you have a 'spare/old' iPad they surely can be usefull.

We (at least I) don't know if this has been a gain or loss for B&O - and probably never will find out.

Hi Vienna,

A3 war nicht Teil des Premium Brand'es - aber das weiss du ja sicher.

 

Greetings/Gruss Millemissen

 

There is a tv - and there is a BV.

For as long as Apple continue to make and sell the basic 30 pin connector iPad the A3 is an absolute bargain at this price.

Just don't place it anywhere where it could get knocked over!

The A3 has a great sound for what it does. However, the fact that Apple changed the Connector like two months after its release makes it hard nowadays to sell A3 to customers. And since A3 was not really the most popular product either way, puts it out of questions that B&O Play comes with an updated version.

So this is a sell out I guess.

iPad 2 looks as if it has disappeared from the Apple website, but John Lewis are still stocking and retailing it in the UK.

Looks as if B&O have let their A3 stocks go in anticipation of Apple ceasing production. Maybe John Lewis provide the last opportunity for anyone to get a new iPad 2 if they can get their hands onto a bargain A3.

... obviously quite desperate - seems they need every single Øre to polish up the soon coming quarterly figures.

PS:  The official B&O online store is still offering A3s for EUR 399,-  ...
just wondering, how customers will feel after finding out they paid the fourfold price ...
