I wonder why Wal-Mart is the only store carrying the Aiptek Action HD.

Why doesn't Walgreens also carry it?

Maybe it's a Walmart Exclusive and part of the contract is that no one else gets to sell it.

the go and the A-Hd are always online with a few others. I am sure they would place the action one day. shipping and tax they charge, and you will get refunded all except the shipping. I preferre a local electronics store over a drug store type.

but sometimes the drugstore types are much easier to deal with .

The reason I'd like to see it in more outlets is due to my belief that it could lead to more discount sales.

So far, the Action HD's $200 price tag seems to be holding; I'd like to see some discount eventually.

Oddly, it appears one can't buy the Aiptek Action HD from Aiptek's Web site.

Aiptek's Web site refers to the Wal-Mart Web site, which is strange.

Yes I agree it would be nice to see the price drop, but as I said, I am betting they have an exclusive contract with Walmart ie like Apple do with their iphone and AT&T. During this period no-one else gets to sell it.

Greetings:


Aiptek Action HD sells only at WalMart, that is strange
indeed.

Also the HD sells on Ebay too, but it seems it can not be
priced below $200.00 US.

This may be another agreement Walmart has.

I truely hope that when the new Aiptek Camcorder begins
selling it won't be exclusive to only one store.

Also I believe in a couple of months we should see the Mini
Projector being sold in USA.

Regards Robert
