Guys I got a reply from ASUS support metioning its release is not gonna happen anytime soon, it may be around November or end of year. Such a shame!
Any idea when is the real launch date ? Nobody seems to know and Asus India does not seem to care to clarify!
Please update when will it be officially launched in India, though it is announced in Jan 2011 yet no sign of release in India, what is wrong with Asus ?
