    I bought the TF101 -- June 2011. The TF201 dock works with the TF700 tablet from what I've read on this forum.

Also, under the serial number, does it say "TF700T Mobile Dock/US/Gray"? That seller has very good feedback and also has the best price. I just want to make sure it is the correct dock before I buy. There have been a lot of posts indicating compatibility problems with early docks not locking properly with the TF700T because they really were TF201 docks. Thanks for your help on this.
    Whatever you hear about the TF201 Dock not being compatible with the TF700 is BS.... There is a thread with a disassembled TF700 & TF201 and other than the battery, they are indentical. Better still, go to Asus site and see what they say about it. On the Marketing page it says the TF700 Dock fits both, but TF201 is NOT compatible with TF700. There was several thread on this at release of TF700.

    Then look at the 2nd Video here:

    ASUS Pad | Transformer Pad Infinity | Features

    "The Next Transformation" at the 3/4 point, they explain all the effort and testing the engineers did to get the Infinity to work with the Primes Dock Tell them to watch their own video and tell you again how they are not compatible.

    Good luck guys. Without the Dock, the Infinity is not so infinite. Let us know how you make out on this issue.

    I'm using the TF201 dock with no problems at all so don't worry about that.

    I got my dock from Visions about 2 weeks ago, and it's the 700 dock

    Thanks for all the comments and resources, especially for Canada.

    Good to learn about Shopbot.ca. Unfortunately, if you actually click through on the offers for the TF700 dock (ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity TF700T Mobile Dock - Price Comparison - Canada - Tablet Other Accessories) they are are out of stock too!

    Well, the champagne TF700 dock is now also listed at B&H as discontinued: ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity TF700 Keyboard TF700T-DOCK-CG B&H.

    However...the TF500 (presumably Android) and TF600/810 Windows docks have shown up however:
    Notebook & Tablet Accessories | B&H Photo Video

    Couldn't find much about the TF500T tablet itself, but it appears that the dock is TF700 compatible:

    I'm willing to bet that what is being seen is a "correction" in the stock numbers (and perhaps the actual build) for docks for the TF700 and whatever else that dock will work with. Until the distribution channels are filled with the "new" version, some retailers will show "SOLD OUT" and/or "DISCONTINUED". The US market will also be somewhat skewed, as I said before, to prepare for "Black Friday" sales. For example, if Bust Buy wants to have just 20 units on stock in each store to support the sale, that some 22,000 pieces. Now think about WalMart with 3,800 stores. Takes a bit of advance planning and work to pre-position those levels of material, especially if a model update is going on.

    I would also guess that most retailers under estimated the dock to tablet sales ratio for the TF700. Perhaps the Prime sold significantly more tablets than docks? Note that BB put the dock for the Prime on a deep discount to clear inventory. Serious discounts on Infinity Docks have been few and far between in the US.

    My bet is that there are several development, manufacturing and distribution factors at play that have caused a bump in the road. Nothing permanent.

    Now I've placed an order through Visions.ca, and it's given me a receipt....so hopefully they actually have it in stock.

    Hopefully you're right....I spoke with another big electronics retailer (one of their locations), and in their inventory system it's listed as discontinued, and unavailable for ordering.

    I wonder if ASUS would say anything on the topic?
