The Asus Transformer Pad Infinity TF700 ( by the way, I really hate these 5-word long names, as they are not only unnecessary but potentially harmful for sales) has showed up on Office Depot’s online store as “in stock” for a $499.99 price.
Other retailers haven’t yet put the Pad Infinity for sale, so it’s possible this is just an error on Office Depot’s part, meaning that you probably won’t be able to order it anyway. The good news is that after a long delay, the TF700 will start rolling out very soon in all stores, and you’ll finally be able to get your hands on one.
What you’ll get for $500 is a quad core 1.6 Ghz Tegra 3 processor, a 10.1″ display with a 1920×1200 resolution (224 PPI), (meaning you’ll be able to watch 1080p videos at their native resolution), 32 GB of storage (double compared to the simiarly priced iPad), 1 GB of RAM, Bluetooth 4.0, an 8 MP back camera, and 2 MP front-facing camera.
I expect the Snapdragon S4 LTE-based version to appear later, for a higher price. At the same time, the price of the original Transformer Prime (which is still selling for $499) will probably drop, and the same should happen for the Transformer Pad 300. If you’re looking for a really cheap tablet, and size doesn’t matter, then you can get the Nexus 7. If you want a decent 10-inch tablet, wait for the discounted Transformer Pad 300. Finally, if you are looking for something that can compete toe to toe with the iPad, get the Asus Transformer Pad Infinity TF700.
Any way, Asus wins, because they are the ones making all these devices.

07/14/2013 1354 hrs. Just got back from Office Depot and was told by their manager that “he had never heard of this”. NOT avaible at Office Depot
Maybe @ a different store?
Bluetooth v3.0 instead of 4 hear is the link
NO it is v4.0 ,,u confirm with gsm arena and
The tablet is really available online because i read about it on another website last night and went to office depot.com and I actually added it to my cart but never did check out because that was not the GB i wanted. I wanted the 64GB version but it was not available.
sold out”@ office depot 7/16/12 :(
Amazon has it in stock and if you have prime you can overnight it for $3.99.
Ordered the TF700 from the Office Depot on 7-14, As of 7-17 no ship date or information from Office Depot was available. It’s paid for but nothing is happening with the order. I think they screwed up and really don’t have them or are drop shipping from a supplier that may be out. If you want one immediately get it from Amazon.
