Update: Asus officially announced a release date of July 16th in the USA. Stay tuned for pre order Infinity listings! If you’re wondering about the Transformer Prime dock and Transformer Infinity compatibility, here is what Asus says: ” 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)”
My gut instincts told me that something was coming. Well it appears that instinct was correct. A big thanks to our loyal contributors Klas and Michael who gave us the heads up about Best Buy showing the Transformer Infinity page up live on BestBuy.com. A few new details in there, like the price of $599 for the tablet without a keyboard dock. The official product listing is: TF700T-C1-CG (CG means color of Champagne Gold)
UPDATE: Sorry folks. The page on BestBuy.com has been taken down. Have no fear, we’re trying to track down all pre order options right now. Stay tuned for updates!
Check it out (while it lasts because I think Best Buy put it up before they were supposed to). It’s currently listed as “Sold Out Online”. This post will be updated when that status changes. I still think midnight tonight might see the pre orders of the Asus Infinity begin in the USA.
We also see that that wonderful Transformer Infinity keyboard dock is listed as backordered. It appears that Asus is more concerned about getting this tablet in your hands than waiting for the keyboard. Makes sense really. I’m sure most people will be happy with just getting the Infinity and waiting a week or two for the keyboard dock. We expect things to change a lot today so check with us for all the details regrading other online retailers.
