I hate to be the bearer of bad news but if you were planning on picking up an ASUS Transformer Prime in time for the holidays, you may want to listen up. We received a Phantip from one of our readers who pre-ordered the supertab through NCIX, an online retailer and according to them, the Transformer Prime has been delayed until next year. The email NCIX sent out to their pre-orders says the following:

“Unfortunately, we just received word that the ASUS Transformer Prime has been delayed worldwide and will most likely not be available before Christmas. ASUS feels the WiFi range does not currently meet their standards and has delayed all shipments worldwide. At the moment there is no ETA and no information on available quantities on the first batch.”

Ouch. If it holds true, this no doubt comes as terrible news for those of you looking to get your quad-core gaming on this holiday season. We’ll keep you updated as we learn more. If you have already reserved or were looking on picking one up, where does this leave you now? Xyboard? Okay, maybe that was too far…

Thanks, Dave!
