Default 16GB P3s available at futureshop.ca (Canada)

I've been checking quite frequently, and futureshop.ca has finally put up 16GB P3s (no other sizes) for sale. They are priced at $279.99 Canadian.

They are currently listed at 'In Stock' for online purchasing, but any store-specific searching just seems to yield 'info not available'.

Just thought I'd give a heads up if anyone is interested.

Nice to see they finally added that to their site. In addition to that, I've actually seen some P3's in stock at the Futureshop in Kelowna, British Columbia. Unfortunately, it was not on display so I could not try it out. Oh well, next time.

out here in ottawa ontario, one of the futureshops we got actually had a p3 on display and it was the 16 gig, 20 bucks cheaper than the iPod Touch 16 gig though, which should be cheaper....

I saw a 8GB P3 on display at Best Buy in Toronto today and got a chance to play around with it.

I've have a P2 (well, in the shop anyways...) and I must say, the P3 screen is just beautiful. The unit was alot lighter than I expected, I guess I've heard so much about how much 'heft' it has that I over-estimated.

Really feels like a 'premium' unit though, just the look of the whole thing, and the sharp screen and that...

Unfortunately, a customer decided to buy the floor model (it was the last one in the store) so my playtime got cut short

I got my P3 in Burnaby Future Shop, the 16GB version. In the end, it costs around $280 for me (I saved up gift cards to save me the 12% tax). There is no demo unit in Burnaby and I think there's only around 2 P3s in Future shop.

Exclamation YP-P3 16GB at USD$162/CAD$200 at Future shop till Monday the 13th

Friends, sorry to double-post, but this is very important

Future Shop is now selling 16GB P3s' at CAD$222.21. This is the price from 10th-23rd.

However, from now till Monday 10AM EST, there is a 10% additional discount on it, bringing the price down to CAD$199.99

I believe that Future Shop does NOT ship to USA unfortunately. However, for those of us canucks, dear god, get it now!

(I am going to price match immediately.)


This means that with this discount, it is the same price as a Nano 4gen 16gb.

EDIT1:

NCIX.com is selling Cowon S9 8GB at $219.99. This makes the Samsung really attractive as a bargain.

In Vancouver BC area, it came out the beginning of April.

I bought mine May 5th for 249.99 + Tax.

I now don't see any on their website like I did two weeks ago.

dang...wish they'd come back to Canada. It's like they were just teasing us...gave it to us, and took it away before the majority of people could get it.
