Apple "Starting today, Walmart has dropped prices on both the iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S, with the 16 GB iPhone 5 now on sale for just $127 and the iPhone 4S coming in at $47." I'm sure a 33% price cut right ahead of the holidays is totally normal for a product of which demand outstrips supply. Right?

I guess here, The Netherlands, we are less lucky.

What happens I suspect that some chain of stores can get their hands on some stock for a good price and then distributes it over a number of their stores, but not all of them. They then put out the adverts and people go to the stores, only to either find out they never had the items or they are already sold out.

We once had to visit three stores to get hold of a picture display/storage thingy and the one we got was the one from the store window, where it was on display despite them having none in stock and still they were very reluctant to sell it to us.
