Asus refutes problems with Wi-Fi on the Asus Transformer Prime; no change in launch date
As the first quad-core Android tablet to be made available, the Asus Transformer Prime's expected release during the week of December 19th is one that many are waiting for impatiently. So when rumors of a delay start to spread, people start worrying. Several of those who pre-ordered the tablet from various retailers told Android Central that they had heard that problems with the range of the Wi-Fi signal on the Asus Transformer Prime was causing the manufacturer to push the launch back until early 2012. It was not revealed where those who pre-ordered the tablet heard the story of the delay from.

This afternoon, Asus US said that there is no delay and that the Asus Transformer Prime is still on for a worldwide launch during the week of December 19th. However, whether you call it intuition, the "where there is some there is fire" saying, or just a plain hunch, somehow we think that this isn't the end of the story.

I'd just buy a warranty and not worry about it. Me? I'm waiting for the Ipad 3, My RAZR's lapdock handles my Android tablet needs, but if I find myself needing more, I'll buy an Archos tab.. Not buying an Android tablet for gaming until they beef up on the Video processors and have the wireless tv link implemented and bluetooth controllers available.
