Amazon Cancels Recent Transformer Prime Pre-Orders Due to “Lack of Availability”

Damn. I hope you weren’t one of the people who pre-ordered a Transformer Prime from Amazon this past week! If you were, then you probably already know why I am concerned. Based on emails that were sent out to those who recently placed pre-orders, it looks like Amazon over promised stock and had to cancel a bunch, citing a “lack of availability from suppliers.” That sucks! It’s hard to say if ASUS wants to limit the amount of tablets that goes through Amazon, or if they simply can’t/haven’t produced enough product to go around. Last time this happened with the OG Transformer because ASUS couldn’t crank them out fast enough. You would think that they would have learned their lesson, especially knowing they were going to release the first quad-core tablet to the market.

If you placed a pre-order already and haven’t received the above email then it’s safe to assume your OK. If the Transformer Prime was something you were hoping to pick up as a Christmas gift then you may want to check out Best Buy or CompUSA’s pre-order situation or maybe even Game Stop’s. Good luck and feel free to let out your frustrations in the comments below.
