Latest News as of early June 2013: Now is the time to buy a Transformer Infinity if you’ve been holding out for cheaper prices. We have seen them as cheap as $379 which is a real bargain for such a high-end tablet. Prices change during the day so that $379 may not be available when you look. We’ve seen prices up to $438 also. Be persistent for that deal but in general it is $379 or $399! Check links over there on the sidebar —>
The good news is most countries are starting to see Infinity tablets available to buy. If you’ve been waiting for the Gold color, we’re happy to say that it’s now widely available in the USA and European countries including the UK. However in Canada, they have no retailers with the gold Infinity TF700. We have links for where to buy over on the right side —-> of this page. We hope to update with good news soon for Canadians regarding the Gold color model. It seems that Canada was one of the last countries to get their hands on the Transformer Infinity.

We are monitoring other countries for possible release dates and information.
NOTE: Regarding the Asus Transformer Prime TF201 and Transformer Infinity keyboard dock compatibility. People have been buying the TF201 keyboard dock and using with their TF700 Infinity. There haven’ tbeen reported issues and one of the biggest technology blog on the internet has verified with their sources that the TF201 keyboard dock IS compatible with the TF700. Adding to the confusion is this official statement from Asus on their product page (btw this statement is actually not correct according to multiple sources): The Transformer Pad Infinity mobile dock is compatible with Eee Pad Transformer Prime. (The Eee Pad Transformer Prime mobile dock is NOT compatible with Transformer Pad Infinity).
