HTC Flyer on sale for $99 at Best Buy – fly to your local store [UPDATED]

After some already dramatic reductions last week, it looks like the HTC Flyer is getting the fire sale treatment from the US' largest electronics retailer. The 7-inch Gingerbread tablet was marked down to just $99.99 sometime this morning, and has already sold out online. The discounted price may or may not be available at your local retail store and store pickup is not being offered, so if you want to take a chance on a great bargain, make tracks now. UPDATE: False alarm, folks. It looks like Best Buy had another ill-timed pricing error.

There are geeks working hard out there to get Android onto the HP TouchPad that failed so brilliantly. The future of WebOS might be murky and the future of updates is something that many that own the TouchPad may be worrying about.

Amazon looking to buy Palm, says HP tipster

If sources can be believed, the last parts of what used to be Palm will soon be housed within the Amazon corporate empire. A VentureBeat tipster claims that the online retailer is looking to buy some or all of the storied handheld manufacturer from its current owner, HP,  who wants to recoup at least some of its losses from its disastrous run with WebOS.

If you thought you'd never see CyanogenMod 7 working on that $99 TouchPad you picked up a few weeks ago, you've clearly got no faith in the awesomeness of others.
