Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime UK Pre-Orders Start Today
We’ve just heard from ASUS that they’ve opened the UK pre-orders for their eagerly awaited Eee Pad Transfomer Prime. The 10.1- inch Tegra 3 powered tablet/keyboard combo will retail for £499 and will be available from all the major UK electronics retailers.
No firm release date has yet been set for the slate as yet but you can secure yours now by heading to Amazon, HMV, Currys, PC World, Carphone Warehouse or even Tesco. EDIT: Pre-order pages don’t seem to be live at all these sites yet- we’ll update the links later.
… I smell ice cream
The bad news is you probably won’t be getting your sticky mitts on your Prime before January, but there is good news on the OS front though, as you should be receiving Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) as an over the air update when your tablet finally does arrive (or soon after).
UPDATE: ASUS have announced a UK launch date of January 12th.
