Talking 12/18/11: Amazon accepting orders again!

Looks like they are giving a small discount in addition to the usual no tax and FS

Amazon.com: ASUS TF201 Transformer: Computers & Accessories

Wonder when we'll start seeing case options up for sale.?

ALSO! The docking stations are now up:

CHAMPAGNE: Amazon.com: Electronics: Asus Transformer Prime TF201 Mobile Docking - Champagne (TF201-DOCK-CG)

GRAY: Amazon.com: Electronics: Asus Transformer Prime TF201 Mobile Docking - Amethyst Gray (TF201-DOCK-GR)

it says "The following item will arrive after December 25, 2011." after you place your order.

I preordered on Amazon this morning as well. Went with champagne 32 GB. Confirm says it won't be delivered till after December 25th though

I noticed Best Buy has the keyboard available for preorder. I only noticed the champagne color but didn't look very hard.

I didn't see it on the actual confirm when I clicked buy. But when I went into the Your Order screen and clicked View Order Details it shows after Dec 25 there. Sure hope I don't have to wait another month + to get it.

Oh, you're right.. Mine says the same at that level. But it also says you can cancel anytime.

If I see it other places before Amazon, I will just cancel and go with another retailer.

I'm guessing it'll be earlier. Whenever I've preordered on amazon, it shipped earlier than that date shown. Somewhere in my searches one website listed it as expected dec 11th. that is certainly not set in stone, but just something I saw. Also, i can't imagine Asus missing holiday sales....that is a huge opportunity for these types of devices.

Ordered mine also. I'm actually OK if it initially comes with Honeycomb, because my understanding is that Adobe has not yet completed and released Flash for ICS, and one of the web sites that I really want to access with my tablet is heavily Flash-based.

I preordered the first night. Shipping date for the tablet says estimated January 5, 2012. I chatted with Amazon rep about this date. Although the date is an estimate, the lady said that Amazon underestimated the demand and that preorders are now indeed sold out. All you can do is sign up for an email notification for when they'll be available for order again. Asus seems to be dropping the ball here. They seriously need to ramp up production.

Yes, but SSD is much faster than microSD, no hassle w/ transferring app/media data, and you have the option to add a microSD on top of that if you want to.

naturally true BUT (1) is it THAT noticeable in the end and (2) a SD card is less than $40-50 but the tablet is $100 more and then you always have a 32gb card ready.

That being said, I kind of admit I wish I would have PO the 64gb and now you cant PO anymore and I don't want to cancel and loose my spot and so... rock & hard place. I also want to stick with Amazon as no taxes (+$40 savings) and free ship (more $$ savings in some instances).

This isn't Asus' fault yo. If Amazon under estimated the demand, that means Amazon didn't order enough from Asus to begin with. Asus can only make enough to satisfy their demand.

I said in my post that Amazon didn't order enough. I'm still concerned that Asus isn't going to make enough to meet demand. If Asus had plenty, there wouldn't be a waiting list to order from Amazon. Amazon would just keep ordering as long as orders come in. I just want to see Asus and all of the Android manufacturers grow the tablet market and take some Apple shares. Asus is in a good position with this highly spec'd tablet to take some of that "apple pie".

Perhaps I should have worded things differently, but hey, I had just ordered the Prime and I'm totally itching to get it. I can't say with any certainty that they have, but history shows they have before. This thing is huge, and I just hope Asus can produce as much as demand commands. I also hope they do some advertising. Preorders must be pretty huge. Imagine if they start advertising this thing so non-techie folk learn of it. Apple needs some more competition. It only gets better for us as consumers when competition is fierce (and fair...I hate the constant Apple lawsuits).

Oh man... are you a Amazon Prime customer? I ordered on Nov 23rd the Champagne 32GB and mine still says good to go. I'm a Amazon Prime customer, I wonder if Prime customers get priority????

Edward and Tytan, what colors did you guys order? Maybe it's just the gray that is short.
