Some pre-orders for the Asus Transformer Prime are being canceled by Amazon
lack of availability from our suppliers" for their order being canceled. Amazon says it will refund those orders that have been 86'd in 1-2 business days. The online retailer started taking reservations in the third week of last month. The latest speculation on a possible launch date focuses on December 19th which Android Central says came from Asus itself.
Those with canceled pre-orders might consider going to Best Buy where they started taking reservations for the Asus Transformer Prime a few days after Amazon started. So far we have heard nothing from the big box retailer about canceling orders.

Well at least we know its in demand. Its not a bad problem to have if you are asus, but they need to get the supply up before people get tired of waiting and look else were.

Amazon and Asus should come to some kind of arrangement. Amazon Prime, Transformer Prime... could be a great opportunity for some cross company marketing strategies.
However, I could see that as being construed as anti-competitive collusion.
