I second this, its stable all the way back. Give it a push and it might fall, but its not going to fall on its own. I feel that its safe.

I can confirm this also. Just picked up the dock from Best Buy today. Had a sticker over the tf201, but that may be a miss print because the same label has TF-700T-DOCK-GR printed on it.

I got the dock from Best Buy. Had to order it twice, because they didn't sent the shampain gold color. It has a sticker that it is a TF700/TF201 Mobile Docking. The problem I have is that the tablet doesn't fit easily into the dock. I have to use some pressure for the lock to it in place. I owned TF300 before, and the tablet easily got into its place in the dock. So, I am thinking, that maybe I need to have the keyboard replaced. Has anyone have the same issues with the dock?

The "real TF700 dock" is the Asus Transformer Pad Mobile Dock with a sticker that says "Compatible with: TF700 Series/TF201.

there was a post here about the dock for the tf500 which is also called the TF700/tf500 dock. Rumored to be on sale very soon, and I think that some retailers were already putting up info on Amazon etc.

I have yet to see a single dock for the 700 that has the contours for the 700 fit exactly in the dock mechanism. Seems to me like they are all one curve like the 200 is, not angular like the 700 is.

There was a post kicking around about the internals being identical, battery life being different because of power draw by the beefier tablet is greater than the older one. For now the 200 dock is all we have, however its labled.

And to anyone that says they have a legit 700 dock, dock your tablet, look at the dock mech and see the gaps between the angle of the base of the tablet and the smooth curve of the dock mech. Congrats, you have a 200 dock. If yours is a perfect fit then pics or it didnt happen.

Cheers!
If what I said was remotely helpful the thanks button is right there, only takes a second.

Since ASUS relabeled the 201 inventory as 700 docks, I am assuming at some point retailers will sell out of the 201 units and restock with

I am wondering if there are retailers that are known to carry the "real" dock now?

I've been researching which tablet to buy and have been leaning heavily towards the TF700. Newegg has a combo with the TF300T KB/dock. Is the TF300T dock any better or worse than the TF500/700/201 or whatever dock? It has a 16W/h size battery according to the specs. And in the pictures it looks more blue rather then gray like the TF700...is that right? Should I bother looking for a different dock?

I can't post a link yet but it's Item#: N82E16834991741
