I got my updated shipping date today from amazon, says: Delivery Estimate: May 5, 2011... so hopefully that is actual delivery not ship date but either way I'm happy for the update!
Might cancel my pre-order depending on when Verizon brings out the bigger Samsung Galaxies. But want something before upcoming surgery. My HPdv8 is way too big to carry into hospital! And the phones are too small to really watch Bones.
I wonder if this shortage has anything to do with the story that Apple is buying up most of the production capability of screens or if it is because of the Japan quake. I'm guessing more likely the quake. It's too bad for ASUS, as their products are very good and I would like for this item to be a big success.
