ASUS UK extends warranties for Transformer Prime over GPS

ASUS talks Transformer Prime returns and TF700

ASUS UK in an update has given local buyers extra support in the wake of Transformer Prime GPS issues. Along with promising that shops would give full refunds for those that didn't like the underpowered positioning, ASUS was giving locals an extra six months of warranty beyond the base year. Concerns over Wi-Fi weren't as serious, with no "known" versions of the quad tablet having problems getting online.

Customers wanting the higher-resolution Transformer Prime TF700 would have to wait, ASUS warned. The 1920x1200 resolution and redesign to improve wireless weren't due to reach the country until June "at the earliest," five months after the TF700 was unveiled.

Many of the problems are believed to have come from ASUS' decision to house nearly the entire Transformer Prime in aluminum, which acts as a natural block against wireless signals. Apple also uses aluminum, but strategic uses of lucite and plastic cutouts let the 3G iPad stay online.
