Default UK Transformer Prime PRE-ORDER LINKS AND ORDER TRACKING **UK ONLY**

I thought it was about time we had a thread for UK release dates and pre orders, both rumours and anything confirmed.

I endeavour to keep this first post up to date with any info contained within the thread, so you should in theory be able to look at the first post rather than go through the whole thread.

UPDATES

TOPCASHBACK LINK: http://www.topcashback.co.uk/ref/1262620201

If you like topcashback, why don't you recommend it to your own friends. Im grateful to those that have used my link, by doing so we both get a bit of a discount on our new technology. Thank you.

COMET:

Looks like pre-orders will be available from Amazon, Argos, Asda, Comet, John Lewis, PC World and Tesco soon according to this article (ASUS linked to it from their facebook page so some credibility):

Majority of places - and all places today, now that Asus announced US release dates - say that it will not arrive in Europe before 2012.

When it comes to the United Kingdom and the rest of Europe, it appears we will not be able to play with the Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime before Christmas, as the device will not release in Europe until sometime in January 2012.

That's not quite true.
All these blogs use the same source, which was obviously wrong.
The source said, the Prime would be released in the US on december 8. Which is wrong too.
So the other information may be wrong too.
Still hoping for a this years release in germany...

Incorrect, Asus spokesperson stated that it will be released early January in Europe. 1st of December was the announcement of US release dates by the very same person, where the 12 and 19 december came (online and retail dates). Web is all over it.

January being the release date in Europe is currently most accurate out of all estimations. That might change, but for now that is the most accurate one.

Nobody knows that "spokesman", the only correct thing he said was the dec 1 for taiwan.
And ALL the internet has it from ONE source. So there's no real need to believe that.

Sign that!
But this proves how stupid ASUS is in that case. Cause currently this news spreads all over.
Meaning people get upset and maybe cancel their preorders / buying other tablets.
So I can't understand why they don't say anything att all! At least something like: sorry we really don't know yet.
All Asus Germany says all the time is: we can not give a statement.

Asus on their UK facebook page as still officially saying early January 2012 for the Prime. They seem well aware of how desirable it would be to get it out before Christmas ideally though. Also, the only model confirmed is the 32GB version with the bundled keyboard dock for 499.

Same as in Sweden. Early January 2012. And only the Champagne 32gb+keyboard package. They will eventually release more versions when they can meet the demands. But for starter they focus on the China and USA market and ships all tablets there.

And once again Europe is left outside and have to wait :/

And that's is from Asus Sverige

I spoke to Asus UK today and they are still saying 16/12/11. It would be nice to have an official release date announced rather than a phonecall or email giving me a release date.
