    I'm over the hype. Have $150 in amazon cards and $60 in BB cards. I'm just hanging tight because I won't havethe amazon cards for a few more days, so when it let's me order, I'll order the tablet from Amazon and dock from BB since I can use the 10% coupon on the dock. I'm no longer stressing about it. Enjoy those who are getting it early. Heck, if the shortage is too much, the Lenovo will be right around the corner, and Asus could kiss their hype goodbye.

    Makes you wonder how much stock was actually out there being places were sold out before 6am. Also shows that all the people that said there is no demand and blah blah blah are a little full of it. Even if stock was limited, the fact many of us here and other forums are left hanging means people knew about it and wanted it; not just us techies and geeks. Unless there's more of "us" out there than we thought.

    Will be heading out to Best Buy here in just a bit for when they open. I know the one I'm going to has stock on hand of tablets, no word on keyboards. Haven't decided if I'll buy now or wait for the keyboards. Was hoping for the package deal they had in the UK but I'm guessing that won't happen here.

    I just ordered from Best Buy, back ordered. There is 1 BB that told me last night they think they are getting a "drop shipment" from UPS today around noon. I will be calling them a few times this morning.

    I may stop by my local Best Buy on the way home. How ironic that my Xoom died on me yesterday as I was debating whether or not to swap it for the Asus..

    Why are all the Best Buy store things "Ship to Store?" Are they not stocking them in the stores?

    No philly area BB's have it. Checked two stores, and nothing. The guy checked around and said all stores were in the same boat. No stock and Ship to Store as the only option which doesn't help if they're sold out online.

    Good news: Best Buy updated their store status of it

    Bad news (at least in CT): It's now listed as "Unavailable"

    Managed to get mine ordered on Best Buy about 7am EST. Gave me an estimated delivery at the store of 5/11. I won't be holding my breath for that. I noticed now Best Buy shows unavailable even for backorder now.

    Well, the clerk I spoke to yesterday at BB should be very happy that he wasn't there at 10am today. I drove all the way over to this one specific store based on his information that they did indeed have them and they would be available for sale today. He even said they had a demo to play with and was comparing it to the Xoom and Acer.... Drive over there today and no one there knew what the heck I was asking for, couldn't find it in store and could barely find it online. I feel a wee bit better that no one else really has stock but not much.

    Sounds to me like they made just enough to make some sort of showing on the date they said they'd be selling them in their respective countries but not couldn't make enough to actually make a proper debut anywhere. I'm just hoping that none of the components to make these comes from Northern Japan. In the camera industry, there are already very dire forecasts for this coming year.

    Ordered mine through BB by phone this morning. Delivery on website said by 5/11. Customer service said same thing happened with the Blackberry Playbook they sold out immediatly with a ship date 3 weeks out but folks were getting theirs within 3-5 shipping days. They only had the 16GB and no accessories (keyboard) available at this time.

    Thats interesting. I hope that is the case here, but I doubt it. I didn't even know the playbook had sold out anywhere, and definitely not through all of North America and the UK like the case with the Transformer. All we can do is hope at this point.

    The best buy site did tell me initially this morning that it would ship to store in 3-5 days, but that changed by the time I got it in the cart.
