    im pretty mad. I payed an extra $100 to beta test the Pre. The first run of pres had worthless screens, I am using my 3rd one and it still has minor light leakage. Current, newer pres have very little screen defects and are $100 cheaper.

    edit: lol, its going back to 199...

    Update: Best Buy marketing manager John Bernier has chimed in via his Twitter account to say that the Pre is $199 and that the "error is being corrected." It'll be interesting to see if any lucky customers managed to nab the device for less than a Benjamin.

    Palm Pre drops to $99 at Best Buy (update: "error is being corrected," says Best Buy)

    Except that you personally attacked a guy for simply stating his opinion. He didn't call anyone names, and to say it was "unproductive" flies in the face of the fact that the thread asked the question.

    Your comments say tons.

    As I said before:

    • Those that were mad/hurt/upset Feel better?
    • Those that got it at that price Going to give them their money back?
    • Those that did a price guarantee Same thing?

    Now, I don't really expect any of these things to happen; but seriously, especially the folks that were so torqued over this whole thing, some folks need to do some serious introspection.

    Anyone that gets "mad" at a price drop in tech goodies in is for a very frustrated life. It may have been a mistake for now, but soon enough it wont be. Two months, two years, who cares- move on.

    AMEN! But I was stoked that I didnt have to shell out $500 - $600, It was even more purchase incentive!

    It's only been seven weeks. Cutting the price by 50% after only seven weeks leaves you feeling like they wanted to see how many people they could sucker in before they set the "real" price on the phone.

    Three months would be easier to swallow-- that's a full business quarter at that point and you'd assume that found some ways to make the phone for less money, sales would have dipped off a bit, etc.

    But seven weeks, when it still seems like they sell every phone they make? Too soon.

    but since it was a mistake on BB's part............

    i wonder if the bad PRPRPR $this$ $gives$ $Palm$ $has$ $made$ $them$ $consider$ $reducing$ $the$ $inventory$ $BB$ $gets$?

    On the flip side, I do hope that this helped get the phone into the hands of a lot of people that might not have bought it otherwise.

    A full app catalog and a $99 price tag will really steal business from Apple.

    Nothing to see here, folks. Move along.

    long time lurker, first time poster... i'm kinda mad about this price drop, or price mistake, at best buy. i just bought my pre from my local sprint store like a week ago. has anyone here had any success with price matching it at a sprint store? i think im gonna go to my sprint store and ask them about a price match. i skimmed the comments of the story on the home page and i did see that someone managed to get $100 credit but it would take 46 days. but don't know how successful i would be, what should i tell the sprint guy??

    Given that Best Buy publicly said they messed up, I don't think you're going to have a lot of luck.
