Asus Transformer Prime, disappointed customers wait
On the 13th December, we brought you news that we hoped would make your Christmas, the official release of the new Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime with it’s date scheduled for today 19th December. Unfortunately for some of you, the news today is somewhat grim.
An issue of the WiFi on the new Asus seemed to be reported by multiple sources including ourselves, in which it became apparent that the WiFi range on the TF201 hadn’t met quality standards, leaving many wondering whether the device would actually make it this side of Christmas. Some customers who had previously ordered the new Asus device a few weeks back, have now as Engadget stated, been reported as receiving an email from Best Buy, that shipments have been “back ordered” and delayed for up to two weeks.
Best Buy retailer has also given customers the option to cancel their order if they so wish, with the advice of trying to seek out the device in-store. The situation is also bleak for Amazon customers, in which they have been told that orders of the Transformer Prime have been “inadvertently cancelled,” with the option of pre-ordering it today for the second time, along with the retailer giving a $10 gift card.
Are you one of the unlucky few to miss out on the new Asus Transformer Prime?
