Here we go again guys (I am cringing as if I’m about to get punched in the face). Word has it that a Phandroid reader who placed a Transformer Prime pre-order from online retailer NCIX, received an email stating that the device has been delayed with no ETA. Apparently the device has Wi-Fi issues and might not arrive before Christmas. Talk about another major let down. The email received from NCIX reads like this:
“Unfortunately, we just received word that the ASUS Transformer Prime has been delayed worldwide and will most likely not be available before Christmas. ASUS feels the WiFi range does not currently meet their standards and has delayed all shipments worldwide. At the moment there is no ETA and no information on available quantities on the first batch.”
I know this sounds too horrible and coincidental to be true, but after reading corroborating comments from the Phandriod article, it seems too widespread not to be. So if you were one of the proud who placed a Transformer Prime pre-order you may want to go check your inbox to see if you have any bad news. If you do, feel free to let out your frustrations in the comments below. We will continue to keep a close eye on this one and let you know how things pan-out.
And thanks for not hitting me. Although I come bearing bad news, I am only the messenger. #epicbummer
