Is the Asus Transformer Prime being delayed in the U.S. too?
Even though the release date for the Asus Transformer Prime is being pushed back until January in several parts of Europe, no changes to the the tablet's U.S. launch schedule have been announced just yet, or at least not officially. But unfortunately, the Prime's debut stateside may be getting postponed as well, if the numerous pre-order cancellations and delays are any indication.

It is being reported that people who pre-ordered the Tegra 3-powered tablet from Best Buy are getting their shipments delayed by one to two weeks, meaning that they might not get to play Shadowgun before Christmas. They were also given the option to cancel their order, to pick a replacement device, or to try searching for the Asus Transformer Prime at a Best Buy outlet, even though the tablet is known to be out of stock. At the same time, customers who pre-ordered the tablet from Amazon have had their orders canceled, but the online retailer is giving them the chance to pre-order again, and a $10 gift card is being thrown in to make up for the hassle. After inquiring with Asus, the guys at Engadget got the following response:
