    Default I don't get it about tablet pricing....

    Ok, look at this, this is a tablet I'm looking at getting:



    150 bucks, awesome, right? Also, this is brand new, I've seen them in several Gamestops by me. Now, here's the EXACT SAME tablet, released at the same time, just in white:




    Whats hysterical is that I can find it listed for 300 or so, under the white or blue versions, but apparently, the black version is damn near extinct. So, I'm wondering why the hell some places aren't willing to price match, when it is LITERALLY the same device, released at the same time, just different color?

    The model numbers are different, literally.

    Maybe the reason it's so cheap is it is not available?

    That or I guess Gamestop got some hell of a good deal. Im just more annoyed because I have Best Buy card/store credit is all, and would rather use that first than my own money. I guess I could not care less about tablet/phone coloration, since I'm going to be putting a case on it no matter what.

    The difference may be of quality. Color difference is another thing but the main difference is of quality.

    My guess is that either the Black was going OOP or GameStop was going to stop carrying it and wanted to quickly purge their inventory. It's just that no one has bothered to take if off the site. No one will price match because it's a clearance price, not a sale price.
