If you live in Canada, then you might just be in luck as BestBuy revealed that Asus’ quad-core tablet Transformer Prime is all set to storm on to the Canadian landscape on December 22nd. The retailers like BestBuy and FutureShop also indicate that the device is already sold out. However, the Amazon Wireless offered the transformer Prime for pre-order and now it has decided to cancel pre-orders “due to a lack of availability from suppliers,” suggesting that Asus is not yet supplying the retail giant the expected first Transformer Prime inventory. Incidentally, the BestBuy Canada site had also mentioned earlier the release date as the 5th of December, which if true would have meant the Canadian debut taking places much before than in the US.
The tablet also has spotted a new pre-order page on Newegg, which has the $US500 Prime pegged for a December 8 release date.
Arriving with Honeycomb, the Transformer Prime will come complete with Nvidia’s Tegra 3 quad-core Kal-El processor, a USB port and a 10.1in screen into a sleek, supermodel-thin 8.3mm body. The confirmed Ice cream Sandwich update is simply the cherry atop this quad-core flavored cake.
