    Hey I ordered mine at 10:15 this morning and they are to email me a delivery estimate at some point. If you are in the same boat as me and get your date please post it here?

    Thanks

    Ordered at 12:01am (32gb version), no estimate for delivery. It doesn't look like Amazon got any of the 32gb variety at all.

    Head over to Tiger Direct, they got a shipment in. You can Cancel Amazon if once you get shipping confirmation from TD.

    Just checked the Tiger Direct Web site. Says that it ships in 7 - 21 days. Pretty sure that means they do not have it in stock right now.

    Still waiting for a date for mine. I ordered at 10AM PST on launch date so I suspect I am a few months out.

    For the precious few who don't know: the beauty of Amazon is they don't charge you until shipping, and you can always cancel prior to shipping. So order away! I want to see this thing #1 on Amazon's Bestseller list.

    only problem is Amazon is charging tax and shipping. now i have to decide if i wanna spend the extra $32 to not be charged until shipping or just pay B&H $399 flat and have to pay up front.

    Amazon only charges taxes in the few states where they have a physical presence. With our sales tax in California running near 10% this is a big incentive to use Amazon instead of in-state etailers like Newegg or Frys. Also, if you have Amazon Prime you get free 2 day shipping.

    The big issue with Amazon is their popularity. People on XDA are saying Amazon is telling them if you order now you are over a month out.

    if you look at the listing on Amazon, it's actually through Target. that's why there is tax and shipping.

    Oh, oh, that means Amazon.com, LLC is not handing the order. That is bad for a few reasons of reasons.
    - One, the tax issue you mention. Amazon.com, LLC has a very limited domicile (Washington, Nevada, and one or two other states). So you don't pay taxes in other states. Compare that to Target which is everywhere so you pay taxes everywhere.
    - Second, the guarantee/refund structure may not be the same. Amazon.com, LLC is free returns unless you just decide you just don't want it.
    - Third, if you have Amazon prime at Amazon.com, LLC the shipping is 2 days and free. Sometime shipping is not free with other Amazon storefronts.

    FWIW, I made sure both my tablet and keyboard were being sold by Amazon.com, LLC. Amazon.com, LLC must be sold out and directing the orders to other storefronts.

    Well, got an update from Amazon today to be delivered on the 04th. I've checked my invoice, and it's coming from Amazon, and not Target. So no tax, and free 2 day shipping for me.

    Amazon just sent me an email that said I can expect my tablet between may 18 and june 2nd.. As for the dock they have no clue.. You would think for every Tablet ASUS would make a dock? or a 1 to 2 ratio?

    Amazon sent me an email tonight saying expect delivery btw May 17-May 27. I ordered about 12:45 am on launch day. Have one from BJ's already and my wife is interested in a second to replace her lame ipad. Could pick one up locally at Fry's if I wanted to go to that chitty store and brave a phalanx of morons, but I don't and I won't.

    Yeah, I just got mine. Funny how random these dates seem. I wonder what Amazon's delivery date algorithm is. They told me estimated arrival date is between May 16 - May 26. Come to think about it, I did also do the Amazon Prime 1 day shipping, which could be why the difference between dates....

    So 2-3 weeks of waiting. I guess I can hang for a minute.

    I just got my email from Amazon. Ordered tablet and dock at 10AM PST on 4/26. Delivery is 5/17-5/27 for the tablet. No estimate on the dock.

    I also placed on order at Fry's for pick-up. The unit showed in stock, but a few minutes later I received an email saying "You item is NOT available for pick up ... due to insufficient quantities..... Sorry ....". So don't expect to walk into Fry's and pick one up.
