Do any of my fellow Geeks know anything about Sony Ericsson product availability in New Zealand? Specifically, I am interested in the MW600 Bluetooth hi-fi wireless headset, seen here:
It's had some pretty good reviews, and has been for sale in Australia for around a month, as far as I can tell.
The problem is that if you contact Sony Ericsson, they say "We don't sell stuff - you have to contact your handset retailer", and if you contact Telecom or Vodafone, they say "What?". I have tried the major electronics chains (Bond & Bond, JB HiFi, Harvey Norman, LV Martin, Noel Leeming, etc.) to no avail. One Vodfone retail store employee actually said "Keep looking at TradeMe - someone's bound to start selling them." But not you, apparently...
Are we at the whim of Telecom and Vodafone, only getting the range they decide to bring in? Are parallel importers my best hope? Or is there some other way (besides saving for another Aussie holiday) that I'm missing?
