    The January 6th delivery I have is for the 64GB in gray. That's the only unit I ordered.

    I actually just ordered the dock to go with it - also through Amazon - with an expected delivery date of January 26th-February 9th...

    Ok. It's hard to compare apples to apples here (bad example here? yikes), when some are one color and some the other, and then two different sizes. I do see numerous postings though of 32gb champagnes being shipped and received. And I believe (but not certain) that I've seen some of these orders fall after mine. Oh well, nothing I can do but wait, as impatient as I am.

    JackG058,

    I ordered the 32gb champagne on Nov 22nd as well and mine has been showing the Jan 11th date almost since I ordered it.

    So don't feel like the lone ranger.. :)

    Yes, I remember that you are in the same boat as me. I hope both of our dates get moved up! Anyway, Amazon had already given me a free upgrade to overnight (I'm a Prime member so would have had 2 day anyway), so I don't really fault them. Their customer service is really top notch, in my experience. Asus hasn't handled this launch well at all, but in the end I know they make really solid products, and I'm sure the Prime will be worth the wait. I was just hoping to have one of my 3 day weekends to play with this thing. :) And my wife is waiting patiently for me to give her my 1st generation iPad. I'm ready to be done with lawsuit happy Apple.

    Then it must have come down to time of day and my order was earlier and beat you to whatever cutoff their system has set for "batch 1" and you made it into "batch 2". Sorry bout your luck.

    For those who remember the old "Hee Haw" show, I can now relate to the line in the song "if it weren't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all". :)

    BUT in your specific case you ordered the Amehyst color, the one that was most popular. So, those sold even quicker and when it came time to cut orders, your 6:45 am didn't cut it. Plain and simple and pretty logical reasoning. It is not JUST time it would be color and time and size related but the guy I quoted and I ordered the same day same size and same color and only difference would be time of day... thus, there is the obvious reason.

    I wasnt arguing with ya...just stating the time I ordered it and that they must have sold quickly....

    Also after seeing the xda thread, it almost looks like the ones shipping are all the gold ones....maybe no grey ones are going out.

    Check that....looked on ebay and peeps are selling grey ones. Love how 500 dollar tablet sells for 700+ during the holidays on ebay. I'll wait...

    I'm still showing a delivery date of January 5th for tablet and dock. I am from the original date of preorder, the 22nd of November, and I've got the 32gb champagne colors coming.

    Nope, my Amazon order has January 9th as the in stock date. I got lucky and ordered a Champagne 32gb from Newegg, it will be here tomorrow. Then I will cancel my preorder on Amazon.

    I hope my patience in waiting for Amazon pays off. I'm going to be so upset if my delivery date gets changed now, with all of you finding ways to obtain yours.

    Anybody order the Champagne 64GB lately and know what time frame they are giving you. I decided to stick with my 64GB champagne order from amazon, but they haven't updated the estimated delivery date in a while.

    "We'll notify you via e-mail when we have an estimated delivery date for this item. It will ship separately. You can cancel at any time. Not yet shipped"

    I ordered the 64GB Champagne on 11/22 and it has said January 18th for a while. I actually have a 32GB Amethyst Grey from office depot sitting on my desk unopened, keep going back and forth on if I can wait for the champagne in 64GB. Got another week before I can no Longer return it. Just not in love with the purple color.

    I know it's frustrating waiting for it, but for me, it was so worth waiting on. I was fortunate and got it Friday afternoon right before the long, New Years weekend. I've been on it constantly. Already filled it up with all of my music, videos, apps, and books, so I've inserted an 8GB microSD card until my 32GB microSD gets here on Thursday. Plus my dock shows delivery date of the 5th so I should be good to go by this weekend. It is a beautiful device. My WiFi has been as good as my laptop, getting similar downloads speeds, so I'm a happy camper. Best wishes to each of you as you await the reward for your patience. :)

    I had an order for the Champagne 64GB, and for a couple of weeks Amazon showed a delivery date of Jan 25 - Feb 10. Sometime over the past couple of days, that changed to the "we'll notify you" line, so I cancelled the order. Are people still receiving the TP? Is ASUS only shipping the Amethyst Gray 32GB version? I've no real issue with delays, so long as the company involved explains what's going on. The silence from ASUS has been deafening.


    Edit/update: Just ordered a 32GB Amethyst Gray from Office Depot; should be here Friday. I decided I didn't care that much about the color (I'm planning to use a case anyway), and that I should save $100 by going with the smaller storage capacity.

    I'm weighing the purple color and smaller storage vs. the possibility of not getting the device till February. Just did get a galaxy nexus last weekend so that should tide me over a week or two. Killing me having one sitting on my desk I can't open.

    Hey guys, all I'm seeing from Amazon at the moment is third party sellers who are jacking up the price considerably. I have a gift card for Amazon that's burning a hole in my pocket.
    Anyone have any idea when they may start shipping themselves for $499? (32gig)
