Canadians Beginning to Receive Transformer Prime Units


It looks like the first group of North American citizens are beginning to receive their ASUS Transformer Prime units in the mail. Canadian reader Mark has reported receiving his through UPS. Check your tracking number from your respective retailer to see if yours is inbound.

United States customers have also reported that device shipments have headed out from various retailers, including a new tip received by us today that GameStop was shipping orders from today and customers should begin receiving them tomorrow (overnight shipping). Hopefully everyone can enjoy some sweet ice cream before Christmas.

All of this lines up with word from our ASUS rep that the ASUS Transformer Prime will, in fact, be available in North American markets starting this week so we’re sure more than a few of you should see it on your doorsteps or in store shelves in no time. Be sure to let us know if you’ve gotten confirmation that your order has shipped! [Thanks Mark and everyone who sent this in!]

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

    1. You mad bro? BTW this tablet is amazing, just hold tight, you should get it in January LOL

      1. Blame Canada! Love this ctoon. All episodes about Canada are effin hilarious.

  3. Definitely enjoying mine. It arrived yesterday from Best Buy. Enjoy Canada, you’re not far behind.

    1. After a month of pre-order, Best Buy decided to back order mine on the 18th.  Bastards they are….

      1. Wow this thing likes to pick up finger prints… not that you would know…

        1. I actualy find that the oleophobic coating really does help. The screen seems to pick up way less smudges and finger prints than the original. IHMO

          1. Maybe my hands are just gre-hea-hea-easy (canadian show reference)

  4. Mine is in transit at the moment to missouri from best buy. But its saying won’t be here til the 27th ;(  gues 2 days after Christmas ain’t too bad cause I’m still actually getting it this year.

  5. First Android tablet I would consider getting, it looks pretty sexy

    1. I like the looks, but it’s the performance that has me craving!

  6. I have it ordered from eXpansys, who won’t be getting stock until mid-late January. I guess that’s the price I pay for trying to get it in Champagne, which isn’t available in Canada.

    1. the guy is from canada and he got a champagne model…

  7. Deju Vu with the original transformer release. Very frustrating. I was going to use this as a tax deduction as well. It is a huge cluster F.

  8. I received an email from Amazon, expecting delivery by 1/6/12.

    1. Oops, spoke too soon. I just received an update…
      “ASUS Transformer Prime TF201-C1-GR 10.1-Inch 64GB Tablet (Amethyst Gray)”

         Estimated arrival date: January 30, 2012 – February 15, 2012″

      OK, fine. I ordered this 11/22/11 for estimated shipping in December, 2011. While ASUS is f’ing around with my order, if something better seems to be coming out of CES, I will cancel the Transformer Prime.

  9. Has anyone received a 64gb model or are they just the 32gb models right now?

  10. According to UPS my Prime is scheduled for early delivery tomorrow by the end of the day.  :-)
