Last night I told you about the possibility of a delay for the ASUS Transformer Prime. According to Canadian online retailer, NCIX, the Transformer Prime was being delayed due to some Wi-Fi signal strength issues. As much as we didn’t want to believe the news it was starting to look somewhat plausible with the amount of people who reported receiving the email. Because we got the news during the weekend, it has been near impossible for us to get a response from ASUS, but luckily the Verge had better luck. In a response given to the Verge, an ASUS spokesman had this to say about the supposed delay:
I am trying to confirm who released this statement and for what purpose right now. At this point, we still show to be on schedule to start shipments the week of 12/19. I will provide an update once I have additional information.
Who knows who this spokesman is or whether or not they would even be privy to the delay information, but I sure hope he is right and this was just a big fluke. I would think that Amazon would have gotten the delay news and thankfully they haven’t sent out emails regarding any delay. I am hoping we still might actually be able to enjoy this amazing Android tablet on Christmas after all. Have you been naughty, or nice?
