Weekly Update – Prime Pre-Order Cancels, LeapPad Explorer

Friday, December 2nd, 2011

Weekly update on all that is happening around the world of hot, hard-to-find products and NowInStock.net

Amazon Cancels Pre-Orders for Transformer Prime

This is one of the most frustrating events to occur in sometime, at least for those that were eagerly awaiting their pre-ordered ASUS Transformer Prime. Amazon has decided to cancel a large portion, if not all, of the pre-orders placed for the Transformer Prime. And those that got their preorders are voicing their displeasure from commenting on the Amazon product pages of the Prime (which Amazon decided it should delete), to forums like over at TransformerForums.com to articles about the debacle on Engadget and Android and Me among others. I pre-ordered one myself and sure enough I also received the slap to the face. There is nothing more frustrating than having your anticipation squashed. What really irritates me is the canceling of the order. I expected delays on the Prime when I pre-ordered it, and I was willing to accept receiving my pre-order well into January/February. What I was not expecting was for Amazon to rip me out of line and kick me to the curb. This is what I call a failure of customer relations. Yet, I have a service representative trying to apologize to me when questioning the incident. I want whoever made the decision to rip me out of line to apologize for their failure. And I don’t care if the reasoning was ASUS is having issues with demand; I will wait in line!

But never fear, there are retailers still accepting pre-orders. They may or may not go through in the end, but at least you can try. If you are still interested in placing a Prime pre-order elsewhere, head over to our Transformer Prime In Stock Tracker to see who is still offering them.

LeapPad Explorer

LeapPad Explorer continues to shine in the sales department and there is no sign of demand letting up. We saw subscribers pouring into the site this past week. When adults have a neat toy, the kids will want one too. LeapPad is there to fill the void and give the kiddies something to play with while mommy and daddy use their own tablets.

If you really want a LeapPad, I suggest you sign up for a FREE account then get the Desktop or Browser Alerts running on your computer.

Other Notables and New Items

While LeapPad is the clear dominator this holiday season, there are quite a few other products that are in demand, some were on the site last week, but we also have a few new ones:

Monster High Dolls – the Monster High Dolls strike again this year. With the hottest dolls being Toralei, Abbey, and Spectra. Holding steady near the top, but nowhere even close to LeapPad Explorer.
Angry Birds – taking the life of the party on your tablet offline was sure to be a hit. Angry Birds board game-style is selling like hotcakes. This past week interest has increased, but not much.
Lalaloopsy Dolls
– Lalaloopsy is back again this year. Some interest is definitely there, but Monster High still tops them.
Doodle Bear
– This cuddly little bear is not gaining anymore momentum.
Skylanders – seem to be warm, but even with a mention of shortages in inventory from Activision, interest still seems static.
Fijit Friends  – This is a new one of those dancing items. Not sure it will get any more interest, but I could be wrong. They are available fairly frequently.

LeapPad Explorer Poised to Be the Hottest Holiday Item

Friday, November 25th, 2011

First, Happy Thanksgiving to all of those US readers out there. And with Thanskgiving comes the true beginning of the holiday season. This is also typically our high time of the year here at NowInStock.net and marks the  beginning of Holiday Hot Item Updates.

LeapPad Explorer

With the way things have been progressing on NowInStock.net and the rest of society, I think it is safe to say tablets of all types are here to stay for some time. As a result of this hot trend, we will have to predict that LeapFrog’s LeapPad Explorer will be the hottest item this holiday season. Subscribers are flooding to the site awaiting their next FREE alert to grab one of these LeapPad Explorers without the hassle of holiday shopping in stores or racing from store to store. Typically, when you have one hot item, a subsequent item then takes up some of the slack caused by lack of inventory. Will the VTech InnoTab be this item?

ASUS Transformer Prime

For all of the grown-ups out there, your tablet needs are not to be forgotten. ASUS has recently launched the long anticipated follow-up to their highly successful Android tablet from earlier this year called the ASUS Transformer with the latest version dubbed Transformer Prime. The first tablet sporting the brand new NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor with 5 cores! Couple this with the tablet likely being one of the first tablets to land Ice Cream Sandwich, Android 4.0, this tablet is poised to be a great follow-up to the original ASUS Transformer. Pre-orders are sold out on Amazon, yet there are still other places to get your order in. The official release date is still pretty vague, but it looks like December 8th is when inventory will start hitting the shelves. If you want to pre-order the Transformer Prime, head over to the Transformer Prime tracker.

Other Notables

Monster High Dolls – the Monster High Dolls strike again this year. With the hottest dolls being Toralei, Abbey, and Spectra.
Angry Birds – taking the life of the party on your tablet offline was sure to be a hit. Angry Birds board game-style is selling like hotcakes.
Doodle Bear – This cuddly like bear your kids can decorate with markers is making a presence this year, but can it gain anymore momentum?

ASUS Transformer Prime Pre-Orders Selling Out

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2011

Well at least the 32GB Grey version of the Transformer Prime. Wait, it looks like, yes… Amazon is stopping all pre-order sales of a Transformer Prime in all models and color flavors. Also, along with the Transformer Prime, the Prime Docking Station in Grey is sold out as well.

Don’t fret if you are looking to pre-order a Transformer Prime, there are now plenty of other purchasing options from other retailers. See our Transformer Prime Pre-Order Tracker for all options, but you might want to make that decision now if you want your place in line.

ASUS Transformer Prime in 3 Colors?

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2011

It appears that with the release of the J&R pre-orders for the ASUS Transformer Prime, there may be 3 different color options. Previously with Amazon and TigerDirect, there were just two colors, Champagne and Amethyst Grey/Gray. But after receiving my notice that pre-orders were available for the Prime at J&R, I found it interesting that there was a new color code ‘SL’ for Silver as stated on the J&R site.

This ‘SL’ code doesn’t show on either of the other two sites, so I am wondering just what exactly is going on. After examining the photos on all the sites, I think J&R just got it wrong and marked the Champagne ‘CG’ version as Silver ‘SL’. What reinforces this thought is they are also offering the Grey model but have the color code ‘GY’ instead of ‘GR’ as used on Amazon and TigerDirect. Not to mention is appears that J&R’s drive size codes are also different than the other two stores, showing ‘A1’ instead of ‘B1’ and ‘B1’ instead of ‘C1’ for each the 32Gb and 64GB models. I guess only time will tell.

If you are looking to pre-order the ASUS Transformer Prime, then check out our Transformer Prime Tracker to see who is offering what.

$300 Price Drops on Blackberry PlayBook!

Sunday, November 20th, 2011

If you are looking for a tablet,  you might be interested to know Blackberry has just dropped the price on the Blackberry PlayBook across all models with a $300 dollar price drop! This is very similar to what HP did this past summer with the TouchPad, but I don’t think it is completely the same as HP’s price drop was the result of an end-of-life call to the TouchPad. I believe it is more of a competitive issue at this point with so many players in the tablet space; $499 for a 16GB tablet… those days are disappearing quickly.

Models are as follows:

16GB PlayBook – $199
32GB PlayBook – $299
64GB PlayBook – $399

To get this special pricing, head over to Buy.com.

Update – ASUS Transformer, Toshiba Android, Chromebooks, and more.

Thursday, May 12th, 2011

Wow, this past week has been really busy. Below is a quick update on some new things released here at NowInStock.net.

ASUS Transformer Madness!

The ASUS Transformer continues to be on fire. I even picked one up myself to give it a whirl since I have been waiting for the best Android tablet to come along at a reasonable price. The device does not go without some issues (to be expected), but overall my laptop has definitely seen less usage over the past week. It definitely is a nice device to have around. Now I just need to get that NowInStock.net Android app coded. If you are still looking for an ASUS Transformer to add to your tech collection, then head over to the ASUS Transformer In Stock Tracker and sign up for the FREE in stock alerts.

Toshiba Android Tablet Tracker Launched

We launched a Toshiba Android Tablet Tracker. Not many stores are currently listed, but more will be added as more retailers begin to list this item. This is another highly anticipated Android tablet, but rumors of high cost might ward off potential customers especially with the recent ASUS Transformer release. Want FREE in stock alerts for the Toshiba Android tablet? Head over to the Toshiba Android Tablet Tracker.

Chromebooks are coming!

The laptop might be nearing its end if Google has its way. The ever expanding cloud is coming to a netbook near you in the form of Chromebooks. Running the ChromeOS, these device don’t warrant large storage, the intent is to keep everything in the cloud and give users nothing but a browser and some apps. Currently, Chromebooks are being manufactured by Acer and Samsung at the time of this post with more to come I am sure. If you want to know the minute pre-orders for these devices begin, then head over to the new Chromebooks In Stock Tracker and sign up for the FREE alerts. If you want pre-order alerts for Chromebooks, make sure you turn on the pre-order switch! As soon as Best Buy launches product pages for Chromebooks, we will add them to the tracker and send all subscribers an update email so you can add them to your account.

Canon Video Cameras – XA10 HD

Lastly, we had a user request for another video camera tracker, the 2nd in a weeks time with the last one being the Sony Video Camera Tracker. The Canon XA10 is a newly released video camera that is back-ordered all over the place. If you are one of those people looking for the Canon XA10, then head over to the Canon Video Camera Tracker and sign up for the FREE alerts! We will notify you as soon as we see stock available for purchase.
