WG-10 not appearing in Target stores

So it looks like Target have just updated their website saying that the WG-10 will only be sold online, and not in stores. Wasn't the whole point of this camera to be a more affordable consumer product?

PENTAX Optio WG-10 14MP Waterproof Digital Camer... : Target

Also, I think one of the goals of this exclusive agreement was to increase Pentax' brick-and-mortar retail presence.

Looks like they are reneging on that deal.

Maybe this is just a technical glitch then- because last week, it said it was in stores, but every store I checked didn't have em.

I noticed a red WG series camera in my local Target. I didn't check out the model number though. I thought they were going to sell the K-30, but I've never seen it there.

North of the border Target is new, they had the X-5 and WG-2 on display when I wandered in a week or so ago. No SLR or newer WG models though.

Last week, I saw the WG-2 was on clearance for $124 in Target stores, but every store I went to (and Target on-line) was sold-out. I took that as a sign they were getting ready to display the WG-10.

They were selling the X-5 for $229, not sure if that is long-term or was just temporary. Looks kinda meh, but feels great to hold, the grip is awesome. But I digress ...

Saw the WG10 in the Target here in Pensacola Fl last night. To my knowledge it's the only place here to see any Pentax product.
