[access-uk] Re: Camera Imaging Devices was RE: Re: kurzweil 1000

So, why would a manufacturer demand a run of 50000?  It seems to me that a 
lot of the stock will be out of date before it would sell.  If this is so, 
then it's obviously these manufacturers who are screwing everyone.

Let's see if I've got this analogy right.  It's like caterers making a 
thousand times more sandwiches than were needed for a shop, and charging the 
shop for them all, even though only a fraction of the sandwiches would be 
sold. The shop would have to put the extra cost on each sandwich in order to 
pay for the whole order.  Still, if I'm starving and the sandwiches cost 
£200 each, I'll buy one.

Cheers

Barry

You wouldn't sell 50,000 units which is the problem, not in any 2 or five 
years.  Even the venerable and very popular Powerbraille would not have sold 
as many units as that I think.  The argument goes that if you lowered the 
price more people would buy eventually, this may even be true however you 
would need fantastic amounts of initial capital outlay to keep you going 
before you got that money back in for units sold and that may take far 
longer than any investor would be willing to wait.

Only the very largest Japanese electronics firms are able to make that sort 
of punt.
