ASUS Transformer Prime Release Date Plays Musical Chairs

Oh man. Looks like the ASUS Transformer Prime is following in the footsteps of the Galaxy Nexus and release dates are being ‘confirmed’ and suggested left and right! Gamestop is responsible for most of the confusion, saying the device would release on Dec. 9th, then Nov. 28, then changing it back to the 9th again bringing us to this mornings claim of December 19th! Which is it Gamestop!? And to only make matters worse, now NetbookNews has reported to Phandroid, claiming that an ASUS spokesman has verified Dec. 8th as the day that US customers will be able to get their hands on the illusive quad-core beast. Unbelievable! That’s pretty much all I can say about the round-about nonsense surrounding the release of this Tablet and that everything at this point is precisely that, unbelievable.

Until we get further notice straight from the horse’s mouth, we can’t wont predict a ‘confirmed’ release date. There is too much going on for me to be a betting man, but I am more inclined to believe NetbookNews over Gamestop. Pick a date and cross your fingers.

    I’m hoping for the 8th since it’s the closest, and but who knows.

    My preorder on Amazon says ETA January 13… which to me means there was no point in pre ordering it

    I think the 12th is the most likely if its the 19th then it would be too close to Christmas and a lot of people wouldn’t get it in time. The 8th and 9th are in the middle of the week. Logistically speaking corporations see this as a nightmare. The 12th seem plausible, its a Monday, it is far enough out that it makes sense they haven’t said anything official yet 

    EDIT: I havent heard anything official except from ASUS themselves that they havnt released the date yet. (check the ASUS North America FB page I have a conversation with a rep going on their wall) I have seen all the rumors and this is just me putting my OPINIONS into the speculation. Take it as you will.
