No Harvey Norman is not trying to sell you a Samsung Galaxy S for $399

Screenshot 2015-08-28 at 4.43.12 PM
When it launched in 2010, the Samsung Galaxy S was a big hit for Samsung and converted a number of users to Android. It changed a lot in the industry and if you were offered one for $399 at the time, it would be a bargain, 5 years later not so much. So, when someone posted a link to the phone on the Harvey Norman website on /r/Android the other day we thought we’d check it out.

The phone is indeed advertised for sale on the Harvey Norman website – but won’t be for much longer. We asked their online sales chat about whether there was any stock and they advised that they actually have no stock.

Based on no stock the customer service agent has advised they have flagged it for removal, which should be very soon.If you want to have a look at this relic, you’d better be quick.

If you see any other dated entries for phones on other websites, let us know!

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

I still use one of these as a media player in my car. It’s running 5.1.1 too

I had a SII a while back and I paid $600 or so.
I would assume that this is a website error, no way would any HN store have an original Galaxy S that is new and it is too expensive to be a refurbished unit

You did read the article you are commenting on right? The customer service rep said there is none left and has flagged the page for removal….

Yeah I did, but this was most likely a site error

Wow, I never thought something I posted Reddit would get on AusDroid.
