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. Don't everybody click that link at once, now.
Other go-to online retailers like Amazon aren't showing the TF700, so this is probably a clerical error on Office Depot's part. While you get free shipping if you pull the trigger, said shipping is of the vanilla 3-5 business day variety, so it probably wouldn't be any faster than walking down to Best Buy come Monday (or even getting Amazon's 2-day shipping). There's no sign of the keyboard dock on Office Depot's site - you know, that thing that makes a Transformer a Transformer - but it'll probably be available separately and in bundle form soon enough.
If you're still on the fence on this one, check out our ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity review. And take note, bargain hunters: the original Transformer Prime (still certifiably awesome) will probably get discounted here and there once stock of the TF700 stabilizes.
