    The Quad-Core behemoth, the Asus Transformer Prime, went up for pre-order availability just yesterday. Also, some new info just leaked that the super-tablet will officially launch on December 16th. Supposedly, Amazon of all sources, leaked out the release date of the Transformer Prime to a customer in an online conversation. Obviously this could just be a rumor, although the screenshot below seems to suggest it has some merit. Still, even if the screenshot is legit, the Amazon employee could simply have been mistaken.

    Ultimately, since pre-orders have begun, it is possible that this date is solid, but we will just have to wait to find out. Here's a refresher on specs and price:
    • 1.3GHz quad-core Tegra 3 processor
    • Android 3.2 Honeycomb (ICS will come to it sometime early next year)
    • 10.1-inch display
    • 1GB of RAM
    • 8-megapixel rear camera
    • 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera
    • A microHDMI-out port and SD card support
    • Available in gray or champagne
    • $499.99 for the 32GB model
    • $599.99 for the 64GB model
    Who is intrigued enough to get this for the holidays?

    Gamestop has shown 11/28/11 and Dec 9th in the same day, and have heard from someone else that a best buy rep told the the 18th. Who the hell knows at this point sadly.

    Curious to know if anyone, who has placed a Pre-Order for the the Transformer Prime has received a Ship date? I ordered a 64 gb prime from Amazon (US) and the shipped date says After December 25th.

    I see most sites only have the 32GB version. Anyone aware of any manufacturing/supply challenges with the 64GB version?

    As much as I am enjoying my Transformer, the Prime may replace it!

    You may be on to something, manufacturers tend to push the lower spec'd units out the door first, but it should be worth waiting a couple extra weeks for a 64gig tablet
