HDTVs are also drastically reduced in price, and they’ve even got a player for $99. Good times all around.

Palm Pre for $99, thanks to Best Buy error

Palm Pre for $99, thanks to Best Buy error

Looks like Best Buy is the latest company that has to deal with a mis-printed price, as they’ve had the $199 listed at half the price.

This morning they posted an ad for a $99 Pre.  Internet sites everywhere went ablaze at the sight of this deal, but a tweet by John Bernier, Best Buy marketing manager, said that the “error is being corrected.” Too bad, but if you were able to get ahold of one for $99, Best Buy will honor that price.

Best Buy Insignia Blu-ray Player Drops Price

Insignia Blu-ray Player

Best Buy is selling its Insignia Blu-ray Player for very little funds. The NS-BRDVD features Dolby Digital Plus, DTS-HD and Dolby TrueHD support, has a built-in SD card slot, and upconverts standard DVDs to 1080p. After a $30.00 rebate, the player will set you back only $199.99 and the company is throwing in a coupon book good for $100.00 off select Blue-ray movies. It is available both online and in their stores. Our first impression is to go to the store and compare it with another using the same TV, but we don’t really want to spoil the inexpensive moment.

iPhone 3G coming to Best Buy next month

Best Buy iphone 3gIf lining up at the Apple Store or AT&T Store isn’t your thing, and you are still in need of an , you may be interested to know that, beginning next month, you can instead join the crowd outside of your local Best Buy in the morning. Well, if yours is one of the 18 Best Buy Mobile locations in the US.

It appears that on September 7th, all the word that Best Buy went into coaxing AT&T and into allowing them to be the exclusive third-party distributor of the iPhone 3G will have paid off. Don’t expect any price breaks (or increases), as they will be selling the phone for the same $199 and $299 (if you qualify) price point that you will find in the first-party stores.

Hopefully this is a sign that there will be more to go around?

Beats by Dr. Dre unboxing gallery

Beats by Dr. Dre headphones removing plastic

We’ve been following the headphones ever since we first got some hands-on (and ears-on) time with them back at . The Gear Live group that got to try them out included a few serious audiophiles, and we were thoroughly impressed by the sound that they were putting out, and this is when they were still in the development phase.

We just got a pair of the final production model, and early indications are that they are full of a bit more awesome than they were back then. We will hit you with a proper review soon, but for now, we wanted to get you a nice Beats unboxing gallery, chock full of unboxing shots. We’ve got over 30 images for you to chew on while you wait for these bad boys to launch on July 25th. If you want them, you will find them exclusively in Apple Stores and Best Buy, as well as over at BeatsByDre.com. They will run you $349.95, $50 less than they were announced for back at CES.

Also, in case you missed it, check out our Beats by Dr. Dre unboxing video.
