Initial production run of the X1000 being 250 units is not very encouraging. Even the OpenPandora guys managed to sell out a first batch of 4000 units and are on to the second one.

Errrr, the X1000 costs "north of 1500", while the Pandora costs something like 270 (estimated). You do NOT expect to sell the same quantity of something when it costs far higher. Same way that A500/A1200 sold FAR more than A2/3/4000.

Also, I doubt A-Eon have any real idea how well the X1000 will sell, so it's better to be start with relatively low volumes, and see how they do. If they over-estimate the volume, then they go bust. If they under-estimate, then no problem apart from a small delay to customers.
