Update: It looks like Amazon got its shipment in before expected, as the gray TF700 has just switched over to "in stock." As a result, Amazon is now sending out notifications to everyone who has already ordered to let them know that their tablet is on the way:

So if you haven't already, now may be the time to order! Thanks, David!

Office Depot beat them to the punch, but if you want options when buying a shiny new ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity TF700, you'd best check out Amazon.

ASUS tablet fans have been eagerly awaiting the Transformer Pad Infinity TF700 ever since it was announced, bringing a full 1080p screen panel (not to mention some much-needed wireless improvements) to the company's flagship tablet slot. The TF700 isn't scheduled to go on sale in the US until Monday, July 16th, but Office Depot seems to have jumped the gun. They're currently showing the much anticipated tablet as "in stock", presumably ready to roll out to anyone who pays the $499.99 MSRP.

We've been eagerly awaiting information on when the Nexus 7 will be shipping to individual customers. Well, it looks like the wait is nearly over. If you were to call Google's help line right now, you'll get an automated message saying that orders have started shipping now and that all pre-orders should ship within the next 3 business days.

Here's the full message:

"We're now shipping Nexus 7 pre-orders. The first wave of orders are going out today and all pre-orders are scheduled to ship within the next 3 business days.

When we first discovered Slice, the app that scans your email for packages that you're waiting to be delivered, has updated to version 2.0 and brought a host of new features with it. For starters, if you use Hotmail, AOL, or iCloud as your primary email, you can now join in the fun. You can track outgoing packages by scanning tracking barcodes as well or entering the number manually, and filtering options have been improved.

Update: We've heard from Samsung that this page was put up by Amazon by mistake (aka, it was set to auto-publish), and has since been taken down. If you submitted an order, it'll likely be refunded in a short time, if it hasn't already. We can still take something from this, though - the Note 10.1 is coming soon (probably next month), and it'll likely be $550 for the 32GB version.

Looking to make online shopping just a little more organized and manageable, Slice came to Google's Play Store today. The app promises to be "the simplest way to track and organize your purchases," and seems to deliver on that promise, efficiently and effectively finding, organizing, and storing receipts and tracking info on your Android device.

Slice automatically works with your Gmail or Yahoo Mail account, scanning for purchase receipts and tracking info, and organizes everything into a clean, easy-to-use interface.

FedEx recently released an official app for Android, bringing all the power of the shipping giant's online features to your mobile device.

Users can even nickname shipments and add notes, essentially covering all the bases when it comes to creating and managing shipments.

Looks like Verizon isn't waiting until May 25th to ship the Xperia Play - at least a few customers have received confirmation that their phones have already been mailed.

We first caught wind of this yesterday, when @0mie tweeted:

all #Revolution #Play orders SHOULD start shipping Thursday night/Friday Morning :)

Today, one Droid Life reader confirmed the essiting info with the following screenshot:

Of course, it's possible - likely, even - that not all pre-ordered Xperia Plays have been shipped yet.
