    64GB ASUS Eee Transformer Prime delayed until Q2 of 2012

    Asus has confirmed that its 64GB Transformer Prime release date will be delayed until Q2 or 2012

    Published on Dec 20, 2011 Asus has confirmed that the 64GB version of its highly anticipated Eee Pad Transformer Prime will be delayed until Q2 of 2012. SlashGear got the scoop and reported the following: ‘Those who have ordered the 64GB version, however, are being warned of a further delay to the second quarter of 2012. Those who aren't willing to wait are being offered the chance to cancel their orders and choose the January-scheduled 32GB version instead.’ This means that many retailers will be left with egg on their faces after claiming that all versions of the Transformer Prime would be available on time – i.e. before the end of 2011. Well that’s no longer the case. But what’s causing these massive delays? No one knows for sure. But there is speculation circulating that suggests ASUS is struggling to get its hands on the necessary 64GB NAND flash storage chips that will feature inside the device. We’re not sure about this. And there’s been no official word from inside ASUS as to why the delay is happening.

    Well the cats out of the bag! I wish Asus would be more open to releasing this information sooner I just read on the forum where one guy had a 32 and 64 preordered and he just canceled his 32gb in hopes of receiving the 64gb soon. So now he will probably be put at the back of the line for a 32gb. This prime has just been a huge fiasco.

    The problem with this article is that really it doesn't state where the delay is occurring. Is this a global delay? Are all markets impacted?

    This article, as I understand it, is related to the release of the 64 in the UK only. Seems that would be an important piece of info. Just sayin.

    Poorly written.

    Ugh. This will sizzle a lot of people who pre-ordered a 64gb prime.

    One would think and only think... if the issue is 64G memory it just may impact shipments globally

    One may think that. Except, that this article that you cited is referring to the UK market only. Its implication could be inferred to mean a global impact. But that would be incorrect.

    Here is one:

    ASUS Transformer Prime 64GB could be delayed until Q2 2012 for Europe | Ubergizmo

    "According to reports, customers who were looking to get their hands on the 64GB model of the Transformer Prime may have to wait until Q2 2012 before they receive their products. This was confirmed by UK online retailer Clove, who has suggested that if customers wanted the tablets, they will have to contend with the 32GB model which supposedly won’t be available until January 2012 at the earliest, although that does seem to be in line with ASUS’s launch of the Transformer Prime for European markets"
