One of the hottest gadgets of this holiday season, the Transformer Prime (see our preview and review), is scheduled to be released the week of December 19th - that would be any day now starting today. In anticipation of the launch, Amazon re-launched pre-orders for all four color/size combinations after they went dark, disappeared completely, and even got cancelled in some cases shortly after the first wave was sold out.
Update #1: ASUS issued the following statement today:
ASUS started filling the inventory pipelines this past week for our new Eee Pad Transformer Prime and will continue to do so on an expedited basis for the foreseeable future.
The IdeaPad K1 Honeycomb 3.1 10.1" tablet from Lenovo, released in July (not to be confused with the more expensive ThinkPad tablet), has only been out for a bit over a month, but Fry's Electronics is already folding its cards and letting it go for a whole $100 off the $449.99 price sticker. Well, technically, you get a $100 Fry's gift card, but hey - free is free, right?
The only problem - the deal is only good for today, Saturday, August 27th in all Fry's retail locations. Unfortunately, the Frys.com IdeaPad K1 page has no mention of the gift card, so if you want Lenovo's first Android tablet in your hands tonight, you're going to have to plop in your car and drive to the nearest mall with Fry's in it (hey, that's a good thing - I like to think of Fry's as a magical and happy place - what Disneyland?).
