Default [Q] I'd love to buy one, but....

I've been watching the web, ebay, craigslist, and tech store's sites for a few weeks now, hoping to score an HTC Flyer at a great price. No luck so far. Was going to use wi-fi only so I don't care about carrier.

But I must be missing something. Best Buy has them for $299 brand new, but they consistently sell for hundreds MORE than that on Ebay. What am I missing?
HTC Fan, but this LG G2 is Incredible

Depends on your Craigslist locale. Here in NYC, I see them from 225 to 270. The black Sprint versions, Evo View 4g models go a bit higher cause of the built in 3g/4g and 32gb storage. EBay deals have had the Sprint version for $240 on several occasions now, keep looking.

Best buy is Oos , and has been for a while. That's why the discrepancy.

Actually, last few airports I've been through have them in the Best Buy self-serve Kiosks. I haven't stopped to see the price.

Not to rub in any salt, but just picked up a brand new in box Evo View off CList for 250 an hour ago. On the bus on my way home now, can't wait to molest it.

You can get on for $298 here. but I bought it for $239 a few days ago so just keep an eye out. I read that it would be 199 at sprint after x-mas here but I think that is on contact
