Do you envisage the price of your 500s to reduce at all once the 510 is on your inventory - namely red premium bundle?
I've got one already but a friend is looking.
Edge 500s have come down a bit now, RRP on the Red Premium is now $369. We are at $349.
To be honest we are probably not the cheapest in town now as all our stock has gone in a sale back in Oct & Dec. So any orders for 500s have to be specially ordered in.
@DoogleDave - Again, only a slight decrease of $50 on the Edge 800's - 800 Naked was $499, now $449
The debate to upgrade or not upgrade will be well played out here, however I dont see a lot of value in the older 500/800 at the moment unless of course you can get a smashing clearance price. We had the 500 bundle at $279 and 800 bundle at $479 and they were all snapped quickly.
To keep at the cutting edge here we bail out of obsolete product very very quickly. So it is Edge 510/810 season around here. However I am aware that the Edge 500/800 may still be of interest.
We have scrutinised the new products here and we are struggling to see much improvement in the Edge 810 over the 800 if the tracking is of no interest. However the Edge 510 with colour and touch screen plus the tracking ability is certainly a jump over the Edge 500.
