Asus just announced today that they will indeed make their scheduled release date of April 26th for USA & Canada, there was talk of it being delayed because the pre-order in Asia sold out.

Can't wait for this to show up on BestBuy.ca. I have a store credit burning a hole in my pocket.

I will be watching this thread with great interest.

They might not allow to use coupons for pre-orders like they did for the Playbook.

Bought an iPad last week for my side business (photography) but definately have a soft spot for Android (own an x10a). I may pick one of these up in a month or two as a toy.

LOL. Not his morning I guess, but honestly I'm pretty sure the big box stores will all have it as well, pretty slim chance they wouldn't even though they aren't listed.
