Asus Transformer Prime Dec 19 release, WiFi delays

There have been several rumours doing the rounds that the Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime tablet will be delayed, but recently we posted that the word was Asus has confirmed that the Android tablet was still on schedule and their would be no delay to the release; however, another rumour has appears which could jeopardise that expected release date.

According to an article over on Ubergizmo, the guys over at Engadget are saying that they have received confirmation from Asus Canada via one of their unnamed tipsters, which say that “the WiFi range on the TF201 did not meet our quality standards,” and further states that the Transformer Prime will not release until such times as the issued is sorted.

This latest piece of news goes along with previous rumours that there is a WiFi issue with the Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime, although Asus has said that they will sort the problem by “implementing a new solution,” albeit not saying what that solution will be.

Having said all this, and the fact that Asus has previously confirmed the release of the Transformer Prime is still on schedule, the Engadget guys updated their article stating they had heard back from Asus US who confirmed that the release of the Android slate is still scheduled for a 19th of December release.

So basically Asus are still adamant the Transformer Prime will come out to play on the 19th as planned, but one could presume that perhaps the tablet won’t launch in Canada at the same time perhaps.

    You have your timeline wrong….NCIX.ca customer told Phandroid about delay (as reported to them by NCIX Asus insider). Engadget picket it up, then got confirmation of shipping from Asus US. Ubergizmo seems to have picked up old Engadget thread.
