I don't know where you guys are getting this OOPS - my dad just left the store watching 4 people leave with them for $99, it's all over Android Police and twitter right now with people scrambling to find them in town! Just called a location about 10 miles from my work that has ONE in stock for $99, verified over the phone, trying to get out there to get it now!

EDIT - Android Police is now saying that it is an error, but some stores are honoring the price...... I'm out of here to go get it!!

EDIT 2 - called right before I left, sold out.............

Except for some stores this morning, BB is selling to no one for $100, unless the stores are blatantly disregarding the bulletin this morning. They have been told not to honor it, so the store manager will eat the cost and be directly taken from their incentive.

In short, the store general manager will eat the cost out of their pay. That is how their profit centers work.

They were warned, so no excuse.

It's not available on their site any more. The link to it stopped working for a few hours now. I hope they are just updating the proper price because I'm still interested in getting at $299.

They called it an online pricing error. What the hell is this? It seems a little more than an online error. To me this seems like a bait and switch scenario. I was one of the idiots standing outside at 9 am waiting for a 10 am opening with like 30 other people. This Best Buy however did not hang a sign saying they screwed up. As if they didn't know why 30 people would be hanging out at 9 am on a Thursday. Come to find out several stores did honor the price. This is a much bigger goof up than the HP tablet.

Managed to snag one early this morning when BB opened. After the salesperson finished the transaction I think he saw that they weren't supposed to sell them at that price, cause he's face and attitude changed, and all of a sudden they were out of stock when I asked him if they had anymore.

Oh well, glad I was able to pick one up, the wife will sure enjoy it. I got my galaxy tab to keep me company
