Thought I might share what I've been using to search the sites (plus I was tired of having all these tabs open on my browser ). I used each site's search engine for "asus transformer" and have been refreshing it every so often. I didn't want to start a new thread so thought I would post it here. Below are the links for the "asus transformer" search. This is in no way to undermind this great thread that tineras started.

Amazon
Amrican TV
B&H
BestBuy
Don't know how accurate these can be so:
- BB Location tracking for 16gb
- BB Location tracking for 32GB
BJ's
Buy.com
Datavision
Fry's
hhgregg
JR.com
Microcenter
Newegg
OfficeMax
OfficeDepot
PC Richards & Son
Sears
Staples
Target
TigerDirect
Walmart
ExcaliberPC
Neobits - couldn't save search page

So did the OP, his links go to the search pages as well.

So, it's basically a repost... but nice of him to try, anyway.

sold my xoom last night so i can get this. the acer might have been a possible option for me but it looks like it has little interest here on xda, i didn't even see a section for it yet. this will be my 4th or 5th android tablet in the last 6 months, hopefully this will be the one i've been waiting for. the xoom was almost perfect, but the lack of usb ports along with the high price and a few other things made the asus too enticing to pass up. i'm hoping to buy from amazon, it looks like these places are selling out quick so i'm watching this thread like a hawk

Again, I don't understand why anyone came under the impression that it would be sold in stores (unless listed as the store). The press release says bestbuy.com, walmart.com, etc. This is exactly what they seem like they have always been planning on doing.

An update related to this thread. Staples and Best Buy both have their ads up and neither have any mention of either tablets releasing this week.

I still don't think we'll see anything until Tuesday and hopefully be able to get it overnighted Prime style from Amazon.

Not sure why everyone is such a big fan of NewEgg.

Sold item before in stock or date allowed to be sold.... Check!
Item sold at full retail price + expensive shipping.... Check!
Charged card in full before shipping... Check!
Won't commit to a ship date... Check!
Won't give any more information about existing order... Check!
Closed on Saturday... (really??) Check!
Don't offer anything for their screw-up.... Check!

You forgot SALES TAX. I don't know why everybody is clamoring to purchase this at B&M with the large amount of tax. It's almost 10% here, an extra $40!

Online from Amazon or a site that doesn't charge you sales tax is the way to go.

Is anyone else here planning a massive operation for Tuesday morning?

I live right next to a Staples, Target & BB: my plan is to hit them in order by opening time (Target and Staples open at 8am, and BB is 9am) and hopefully come home victorious.

I didn't forget sales tax, but wow that's a lot for you guys...

It's 7% here, so that'd be about $28 for me, minus the $15 i paid NewEgg for shipping...

So for $13 extra would I pay to have it sooner and have a local store to complain to if there are any problems?

Yep.

Yep, in LA County here. Sales tax is ridiculous, so I'll probably buy from Amazon and pay 2nd day air (don't have Prime) to get it sooner.
