Back in September we shared a rumor that the Asus Transformer Pad TF701T would become available sometime in October. It turns out that is almost true. It looks like the new Tegra 4-powered super-tab from Asus just went up for sale from a third party retailer on Amazon called EXCaliber PC. However, it is also already sold out (at the time of this post).

It seems strange that it would sell out so quickly, but it is possible. Of course, it's also possible the retailer decided to announce the device a little before they actually got some in stock. Either way it appears the device will be coming very soon! Here's a refresh of the specs:
  • 10.1-inch 2560 x 1600 WQXGA IPS display
  • NVIDIA Tegra 4 quad-core processor
  • 2GB DDR3 1600MHz RAM
  • 32GB internal storage
  • 5MP/1.2MP cameras
  • Micro SD slot
  • Micro HDMI port
  • Miracast Wireless Display support
  • Optional keyboard dock w/battery and full-sized USB 3.0 port

It's important to note that the tablet is supposed to carry an MSRP of $450, but Amazon's third party retailer is selling it for a premium tag of $500. Hopefully other retailers will start getting the device soon and sell for the correct amount.
