Note: Now that the official release date is upon us, this is now a post about where to buy a Transformer Infinity!
*New – Have you been lucky enough to receive your Transformer Infinity already? I’ve started a post which hopefully we can use for your reviews, testimonials, tips, complaints and everything else about your new tablet. Think of it as a Infinity Owner’s Guide discussion. You can join the discussion here.
Canada Update: Great news! We’ve just added a link [page top] (check our listing on the right side —>) to buy an Infinity TF700 in Canada. It’s first come, first serve and they will sell out just like in the USA. It’s an order now and will ship later but this is the BEST option if you live in Canada. We’ve just been notified by a couple of site visitors (thanks Patchan and Dauphin) that Future Shop and now Best Buy Canada is also taking pre orders. At this point it appears Canada will only be starting with the $499 32GB model in Gray. I haven’t seen any indications of the 64GB model making it to Canada during this first initial pre order phase.
USA Update: We’ve learned many details thanks to a lot of contributions from fantastic site visitors sharing via comments and emailing information:
- *NEW – Have you been waiting for the Gold color Transformer Infinity TF700? We see some 32GB models IN STOCK at $499. These will be gone fast! Full details are here!
- It appears that most USA online retailers are catching up with demand. You should be able to find the 32GB and 64GB models in most places now.
- You should consider buying the cheaper TF201 Transformer Prime keyboard dock instead of the more expensive TF700 keyboard dock.
- Amazon.com is shipping the 64GB Gray Infinity model and the 32GB Gray model. Check our listings which are at the top of the page [page top] and check the listings on the right side column —>
- a lot of people are now enjoying their Transformer Infinity tablets and are posting questions, comments, reviews and tips here. We hope to hear some user reviews folks!
- many people are ordering the cheaper TF201 Prime keyboard dock and reporting no issues and it is compatible.
- Best Buy you can order online and pick up in store in 3-5 days (thanks Steff), J&R has stock and you can order via phone or in store, and various other online retailers are starting to show inventory of the Gray Transformer Infinity models.
- a great tip from a contributor to the site Whaa, who offers this advice to anyone who ordered from Amazon initially and may have the outdated shipping date: “For people that placed their orders before the product page shipping dates updated (like I did) my date was still showing the original august date. I changed the shipping method to 2-day, then back to 1 day and the estimate updated to July 19th.”
- Just now, Asus North America Facebook page discussion: Question-“Will the retailers be getting them in their stores or will they just be available on line???” Answer from Asus North America-“they should be in stores this week” followed by the question-“Do you know which stores?” which has not been answered yet by Asus. Draw your own conclusions. We will update the second we learn of retail outlets with Infinity tablets.
- Big thanks to Asfand who has shared a few details in his quest for a Transformer Infinity. Monday morning he has called Best Buy and Office Depot and they both told him that the tablet won’t be in stores until next month. His order from Tiger Direct has an estimated delivery time of Tuesday July 24th. Thanks again Asfand. Everyone appreciates the extra details!
- I must say again to each and every person posting in the comment section or sending updates via email. THANK YOU! Many many people are getting the information they need thanks to your updates.
- Asus North America has officially stated the following: “…it launched on Sunday and seems to have sold out very quickly but more is on the way asap to the retailers”
- if you’re looking for in-store availability we haven’t heard of any stores with stock.
- it appears (not confirmed officially) that the Gold color is not widely available. We’ve been seeing Gray units shipping.
- my personal feeling is that there isn’t a lot of supply out there and that possibly Asus is distributing their available supplies to smaller online retailers. In other words if you find them shipping now, like from TigerDirect.com, you might want to act fast. Amazon is showing a bizarre 3-4 weeks shipping date which hasn’t been confirmed nor denied as being accurate. Best Buy doesn’t even have product pages up or pre order pages. However we’ve seen stock (now sold out) from retailers like NewEgg, OfficeDepot and J&R.
Thanks to the many visitors/contributors to this site, we’ve been getting some information regarding pre orders in the USA for the Transformer Infinity. Please understand that it’s not a matter of ignoring news or links out there. It’s more a matter that the links and pre order pages simply don’t exists. Still. So yes we are constantly searching for news to update you on the when and where you can order or buy an Infinity TF700.
I will suggest however that the Gray model appears to be in the greatest supply. From what I’ve seen from other retailers online, it’s been the Gray model only. I will need to see available Gold models for sale before I change my mind on that.
UK Update: Thanks to Neil, we’ve just learned that UK Amazon.co.uk has a product page and yes, you can now order! It might be wise to get in now and buy it to ensure you’re not stuck in the back of the line. It will be interesting to see how long they keep up the add to cart button before they run out of supply! Let us know how you make out! Check links on our TF700 listings to the right side [ page up ] or look over —>
Canada Update: Official news via the North America Asus Facebook page. Quote: “Hey guys, Canada was delayed and wont be getting the Infinity until early August.” My comment that that is if you live in Canada you might be best off getting an Infinity Tf700 from a USA retailer like J&R who ships to Canada. The only question is when J&R will get them in stock. When they do, this will be updated.
Germany Update: Lucky for you, Amazon.de has been having In Stock units and have been shipping lately!
France Update: We are now seeing pre orders available at Amazon.fr but no shipping date is mentioned. Prices range from EUR 682 to 949 for a 32GB Infinity.
Ireland Update: Big thanks to one of our visitors Gareth for an update. He’s found Komplett.ie which currently have the Infinity available for pre-order. You can buy the 64GB model bundled with keyboard dock for €729. Delivery will be after July 24 and delivery (in Ireland) is included.
Australia Update: Thanks very much to DUTCH who commented about the story here which indicates a few key release date details for Australia. This isn’t rumor, the story comes from PC World Australia and the source of the information is an Asus spokesperson. First off, the release date is “up in the air” and August is the most likely month to see it for sale in Australia. There has been a pricing adjustment from what you may have initially understood. The price is going to be $999 which is the 64GB Transformer Infinity bundled with they keyboard dock. There will most likely not be a 32GB unless there is a strong market demand. Asus is not expected to be releasing a 3G/4G Transformer Infinity model in the Australian market.
Denmark Update: Big thanks to Mikkel for an excellent update send to us via email. A few retailers have been shipping Tranformer Infinity tablets already. From what he’s learned, there is a limited supply, but they have been around if you can find one. One retailer is reporting on their site that their next shipment of Infinity tablets is showing up July 25th.
France Update: We’re seeing a new listing on Amazon.fr although the price is not cheap. There appears to be some options in France right now for getting a Transformer Infinity but there is not many units circulating around the market just yet. You can get the TF700 64GB and keyboard dock bundle for EUR 795,02.
Previous Updates: The big breaking news is that Asus has officially confirmed that the release date is now one day earlier. That means July 15th. The only question is whether we will see Amazon.com and BestBuy.com put their listings up immediate at midnight on Saturday night. That’s a real possibility so check with us because we will be checking around for early ordering pages. I really appreciate the email updates regarding Office Depot. From what I can see, they don’t have the keyboard dock and only have a 32GB Gray model. It says 3-5 business days as an estimated delivery. I think we’re close enough to midnight Saturday night you might want to hold off until Amazon.com and Best Buy puts them up as they will have both colors, both in 32GB or 64GB and may even have a slightly reduced price. I just don’t think Asus is going to let some retailers ship before other retailers. The floodgates are about to open on Sunday so that’s another couple sleeps. Let your credit card rest until then! Nobody will ship on the weekend. We can discuss the deals here is any come up on Sunday!
