In lieu of the successful launch of the BlackBerry Tour and iPhone 3GS at similar price points, and the fact that most early adopters have already paid the $199.99 premium for the Palm Pre, Best Buy dropped the price of the device to $99.99 this weekend. Too good to be true, right? Right. Chalking it up to a system glitch, Best Buy's John Bernier tweeted that the low price was an error and it was in the process of being corrected back to $199.99.
According to Best Buy, the $99.99 price was honored all the way up to them actually correcting the issue and changing the price tags. Was anyone fortunate enough to score a Pre at the $99.99 price point?
