I always find it really funny how people will vote deals hot just purely on the info of them being posted - whether they exist or not...

This has definitely expired, just sent my girlfriend down there and she picked it up off the shelf where it was priced at £19.99 but when they rang it through it came up full price £69.99 I think, they offered to knock £20 off but I dont need it that desperately, still got 6gb left on my old one... :x

damm that sucks mate, i just saw it priced there, didnt actually purchase one. i thought if something was priced on display in a shop they had to honour the price. i know tesco/sainsburys definately does

I'm not so certain they can do that.
The price on the shelf is considered an "invitation to sale", which forms a legally binding contract. The price cannot then change (for the worse) between there and the till.
This differs from internet-based sales, though.

Should have stood your ground. Taken a camera phone pic of the product in-situ on the shelf + price. And insisted they sold at that price.

I do this all the time in my local Asda. Which generally gets me my money back, plus the goods for free, and sometimes a nominal voucher for "the inconvienience".

If I'd of been in there myself I'd of made more of a deal of it but it was my girlfriend and I dont really think she was up for it.

From what I know, it's called an invitation to treat. You then offer to buy it at that price and the retailer can refuse. Like they did in TRU.

Link to explain better than me!

No they don't, this is a common misconception. A lot of retailers will honour the price advertised for good customer relations, but from a legal standpoint they don't HAVE to if it is a genuine mistake. (they do however have a legal obligation to take the product off display and reprice it if it brought to their attention).
