I contacted Incredible Connection here in SA and I got an email from someone there saying that it will be here in late July.

Whether that was him being on the safe side I don't know.

If you have a logical mind and if you also think thoroughly, you will be ready to bet that the Infinity 700 will be released before the Olympic Games the coming summer in the UK. The reasons are that first Acer, the competition, has already nicknamed its Iconia 700 "Olympic Edition" bound to be released way before the Games, and second this is the Olympic Games and in Europe from the Atlantic to the Ural mountains it means something

According to AnandTech, both the TF201 and the TF300T screens have 39% Abobe RGB color gamut. Do you guys think the TF700 will get the same CG, or do you think they will give it a little color boost to maybe 45%, to atleast get it up with the ipad 2 and regular cheap 1366x768 laptop screens?

It is weird that I can't find it at any other retailers except a few Amazon vendors. Not even Amazon itself seems to have it.
Android tablets really do seem to be out-pricing themselves compared to the iPad. At the moment they do seem to be lower spec yet higher price. The only thing they have got going is that they are not Apple and the expandable memory.

Why are they overpriced when they have more features?

Oh wait, it's not from apple so it must be overpriced...

In terms of features, the biggest plus many Android tablets have is that they have a micro SD. In terms of display (which IMO is perhaps the most important 'feature' of a tablet) many, including the upcoming Samsung Tablets, are behind the current iPad.

The Display of the prime is much brighter, much darker and has a much better contrast. It's not only resolution.

And yes, MicroSD, HDMI, Android and Tegra 3 (CPU, Videodecoding) are + points.
But people buying an iPad because it's from apple. So we why don't need to talk about overpriced.
