Now this offer makes it almost tempting.

Fat finger?

What is Tesco? Is that like your version of our Sam's Club?

Tesco is a super market, one of the biggest in the UK. Probably as big if not bigger than ASDA/Walmart.

"Product Not Found" - was it taken down already?

Hmm, they either sold out or made a pricing error.

It was 157 btw.

I think they should have honored that price to be honest... your bad Tesco.

"We are very sorry for the pricing error. We have contacted the small number of customers affected to apologise and offer them a full refund."

"a full refund"... full refund on what? You mean they even took their money?

What assholes... how's that a good answer? If they really want to do good by their customers they should say "we'll eat it up and selling it at that price to whoever managed to get an order placed"

As far as my legal knowledge goes, they made a lawful contract with those that ordered and could be forced to honour them.

If I'd bought one I would push them on it. The only proviso may be that it is a pre-order and not a physical device at this point.

That's a seriously low price! I think I recently saw a brief (one day?) discount on another online store (though I think that was for 167).

I can only imagine that preorders at the normal 219-229 price point have been somewhat slow so far...
