You might recall that Asus' Eee Pad Transformer Prime launched to great fanfare on November 9, and we spotted a pre-order listing on Amazon less than two weeks later, on November 22. It looks like folks who pre-ordered will have to bide their time, though. SlashGear reports that the Transformer Prime won't actually be available until the week before Christmas.
The site quotes this statement from the company:
“We expect availability to start the week of 12/19 based on the pre-orders and inbound shipment schedules.” – ASUS
The Transformer Prime is the first device based on Nvidia's new Tegra 3 processor, and it features a slimmer, lighter design than the original Transformer. In a number of ways—including pricing—it resembles Apple's iPad 2. We expect to have the Transformer Prime in our labs soon, so stay tuned for a full review.
