shows ZenPad S 8.0 (Z580CA-C1) release date of September 25!?

It has been near impossible (yes, it has been impossible) to get a firm or solid release date for the ZenPad Z580CA-C1 in North America. We did see (thanks to a note sent in from a visitor) that the US based branch of Newegg did ship out a few Z580CA units, but is now in a backorder status. For a while we saw B&H showing a “mid August” release date, but they have since replaced that with “coming soon”. Things appear quite positive for the US market.

So given those developments on, we see a real head scratcher on We are quite sure that a release date in Canada of September 25 must be a mistake. In fact when we first saw this listed, we thought it was August 25. Nope. It says September!


If anything it seems quite possible that during next week, people may see their Z580CA tablets start to ship. With shipping some out already, something is certainly happening. Regardless of the accuracy of the listing and date, we don’t feel it’s worth fretting over.

Along with an actual firm shipping date, we are also still digging for details around the official Asus cases like the Tri Cover and the Zen Clutch Case. Hopefully those will be on the market when your pre orders start shipping.

      This news is very encouraging. It would be nice if they started shipping at that date. I’d feel even better if B&H updated their site to reflect the 19th as well. May have to consider cancelling my order there if I don’t get an update soon and newegg starts shipping then.

    No problem. I’ve been keeping track of this tablet myself. I really want this tablet, mine is old and messed up. And dang, I should proof read before posting. Downloaded a different keyboard and its messing be all up lol.
