Best Buy HTC Flyer goof frustrates $100 slate shoppers

Red faces and frustrated shoppers at Best Buy today, with the retailer refusing to honor a $99.99 sale price advertised online for the HTC Flyer. Eagle-eyed shoppers caught the Android 2.3 Gingerbread WiFi-only tablet market down by $200 from its regular price, but Best Buy is now claiming it is a SKU error and won't be offering the Flyer sub-$100.

That's despite the listing still showing up in search results for the Flyer, though the product page itself has been yanked. According to the listing, however, the Flyer was sold out for online sales but could be purchased in-store if stock was available.

Unfortunately, when Gear Diary and Droid Life actually went to pick up the cut-price tablet, Best Buy confirmed it was a mistake. It's unclear if any online sales actually went through at $99.99 - and, if so, whether they'll be honored - but there's no deal to be had in stores.
