dam, $139.99, how were these $79 on amazon? price mistake? thats wholesale price

 

sounds like theres is too many "launch" issues with this guy, best to wait for version 2 or even 3 and for the supply to catch up because the price is way up there and too risky with the amount of units that become defective after a few months

$79.99 was an early estimate that Amazon honored for pre-orders

Not exactly. It was originally listed at $99.99 when the first batch of preorders went up. At some point it was marked down to $76.19 so everyone's orders were adjusted from the preorder price guarantee.

Before Hyperkin announced a price for the system, Amazon guessed that $79 was the price, and put up the preorder. It backfired when Hyperkin announced the price at $139

This is the correct post.  They were listed at $99, got dropped (for a short time) to the $7X price and then later adjusted to the MSRP.
