At the eleventh hour, Toshiba has delayed the release of its first recorder. The groundbreaking Vardia RD-A1, to be priced at 398,000 yen, will now not appear in Japanese AV stores till July 27 at the earliest.
Toshiba’s PR chief Keisuke Omori says the delay has been caused by component shortages. This has meant that Toshiba has not been able to build enough stock to ship the high-def recorder nationwide as originally planned.
The company says it hopes to sell 10,000 machines before the end of the year.
