Optio W90 price jump

About a month ago I've been checking prices of W90. If memory serves me right it was 280-300$. Just yesterday someone from America contacted me that they're coming in Slovenia and will be passing my hometown. I thought I'd ask them if they can get W90 for me and looked for prices again. To my surprise the lowest price I could find was 400$. How come??

It's discontinued now that the new model is out. So naturally sellers are jacking up the price.
I've found it as low as $249 in the US, but it looks like inventory is low.

That makes zero sense to me. Shouldn't discontinued model be discounted to ditch the old inventory? Why pay more for an old model than the new version?

discontinued at most reputable stores, so now individual sellers are tying to capitalize on people who don't know there is a better , newer model out there. Hard to find = charge more. SImple supply and demand.
