    I've looked at Best Buy, Amazon and many others along with calling the stores and no one has any information listed, posted or otherwise on the Asus EEE Pad. I know it's a day away but I have a feeling that I'm going to spend all day looking for this device and find out that it's only being released in huge cities like New York or LA.

    Anyone have similar troubles?

    I doubt it'll only be released in major cities and if it is, you should still be able to order it online without trouble.

    I just saw something on twitter earlier that someone had called asus direct and they said that the Transformer was actually not being released tomorrow. Who knows.

    Asus' Facebook page has a countdown clock ( see: ASUS Eee - Transformer | Facebook ) that puts the launch at like 3am Central on Wednesday.

    It will be available at Amazon, American TV, B&H, BestBuy.com, BJ's, Buy.com, Datavision, Fry's, HH Gregg, J&R, Micro Center, Newegg, OfficeMax.com, Office Depot, PC Richards, Sears.com, Staples, Target, TigerDirect & Walmart.com

    I called local BB and Office Depot late today. Both knew the launch of the Transformer but both said they didn't have any inventory on hand and didn't when they'd get it. Is Asus fumbling the ball?

    Did you get it for the normal retail price? I'm going to have to check again...!

    EDIT: Rats. It IS available for pre-order, but it is via Target so there is no Prime delivery and you get hit for shipping ($17) tax. So, it ends up being $440. Not so bad though. Especially since they are so hard to find!

    I would watch Benjami....... random posts like that in a thread normally indicate a spammer from foreign countries (at least in most of my AV and home theater forums it does) They copy paste posts from other tech sites not knowing what they are saying (language barrier) in order to get their post count up so they have credibility and the ability to post links. Then the spamming begins. Hopefully I am wrong.

    What state is American Furniture in? I don't think we have any of those here in Nebraska.....we have Nebraska Furniture Mart,Best Buy,Staples,Walmart,Office Depot, etc..... etc..... but nobody has any in stock. Is this a result of Japans earthquake? Or poor marketing and planning?

    10" IPS panels were in short supply before the earthquake due to the release of the IPAD2. You add all the events in japan on top of it and the supply is even worse. They had to release the tablet for competition reasons and probably did so with a short supply. I actually ordered 8 at different places. Three of them shipped and 5 are backordered indefinitely.

    You are correct. I mod on several of the sister forums and it fits all the signs. I reported it.
