Here's one of those good news/bad news things: It looks like the ASUS Transformer Prime and its new quad-core Tegra 3 internals is proving to be quite popular. Too popular. So popular, in fact, that Amazon's canceling some preorders, citing a lack of availability. Here's the e-mail that's going 'round:
Due to a lack of availability from our suppliers, we will not be able to obtain the following item(s) from your order:
"ASUS TF201-B1-GR Eee Pad Transformer Prime 10.1-Inch 32GB Tablet (Amethyst Gray)"
We've canceled the item(s) and apologize for the inconvenience. If you see a charge for the canceled item, we will refund you within 1-2 business days.
Disappointing, to say the least. But we're willing to bet ASUS is doing it can to get the Prime into as many hands as it can, as quickly as it can. We'll update with any word from ASUS.
