Best Buy lists Storm kinda available December 8th?

Never to shy away from a good opportunity – Best Buy Mobile now joins the party and lists in a recent advertisment the availability of the Telus BlackBerry Storm on Monday, December 8th. The price listed is $249.99 on a 3-year plan.

If you follow the checkout process it says an “Estimated Release date of December 31st, 2008″… but allows you to Pre-Order this touchscreen and shows the quantity of devices remaining.

However, they then bamboozle you by another 50 bucks and raise the price to $299.99 and say its only available in-store.
