Some Palm Pre purchasers were able to get the phone for half of its cost over the weekend due to mistake.
Press Release Service – Wired PR News – Some Palm Pre purchasers got a surprise deal for purchasing it over the weekend. As reported by the Silicon Valley Insider on BusinessInsider.com, a mistake led to new Pres being offered at Best Buy stores nationwide for $99 with a two-year agreement instead of their actual cost of $199.
As noted in the report, the mistake has been attributed to the discovery of an online banner image that showcased an inaccurate special offer, which was subsequently placed into vendor systems. Those who’ve already received their phones at the discounted rates will reportedly be able to keep them at that price; however, new purchasers will likely have to purchase them for the originally intended $199 offer.
