Our friends at NetbookNews has shared with us news regarding the ASUS Transformer Prime’s launch date. According to an ASUS spokesperson, consumers in the US should be seeing this thing on store shelves starting December 8th, just like we’ve been hearing all along (give or take a day).

The Transformer Prime will come to the market starting at $500 (32GB) and will be the lone Android tablet on the market with NVIDIA’s quad-core Tegra 3 chipset inside. Couple that with 1GB of RAM, a 10.1 inch display and a promise for Ice Cream Sandwich in the future and we’d say this one will be on many’s  holiday list.

For those living elsewhere, Taiwan will be getting the tablet on December 1st but our European friends aren’t so lucky. January is the tentative launch window for the device there. That’ll be a long time to wait but perhaps Ice Cream Sandwich will be out by then – it would make it worth every minute, I’d say.
