    So how many of you guys succesfully purchased a Nexus 9 tablet yesterday and got half off during the flash sale? Well, I'm not one of them. As soon as I saw it posted on the web, I immediately tried to purchase one but to no avail. First I could not get connected then after a while, the page finally loaded but the 50% off sale was now just $50 off. i guess I wasn't fast enough. :rolleyes:

    Today, President of HTC America posted this apology on their site:


    Let's hope they get things working for future sales events.

    Yeah, what an awesome price. Maybe we'll see something similar on Black Friday.

    "Several hundred" units available (that's an average of 4 per state) is NOT a sale. This was an advertising promotion to stir up some interest and some media play.

    Sure it wasn't a sale. It was a nice gesture though either way.

    Agreed, it was a nice gesture/promotion. Just not anything that the vast majority of people will have any chance of getting.

    I'd love to see the total one day sales if they made the amount unlimited for a true one day flash sale.
