Clove delays 64GB Transformer Prime to spring
Talk of the Transformer Prime from ASUS being delayed in the US have just gained more traction, as the tablet was pushed back in the UK as well. Retailer Clove has updated those who preordered the device, stating that the 64GB model has been pushed back to spring from January, while the 32GB model's bundle price that include a keyboard dock was reduced to £499 (about $775) tax-inclusive, saving an extra premium. Those who pre-ordered the 32GB bundle will get the lower price automatically.
The exact ship date for the 32GB tablet haven't been revealed, but it's expected sometime in January. Pre-orders for the 64GB have been cancelled, and those interested can cancel their orders or switch to the 32GB model.
No reason for the apparent setback was given, although ASUS this year has had problems shipping significant volumes of tablets early into their lifecycles. [via SlashGear]
