Asus Transformer Prime delayed until late January in Italy, will have Android ICS at launch
Bad news for those in Italy (and probably in all Europe) who’ve been hoping to get their hands on an Asus Transformer Prime before the end of the year. Asus Italy announced on Facebook that the quad-core Android tablet will not make it to the shelves this month, but only in late January 2012.
The good news is that the Transformer Prime will be out in Italy with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich from day one – this confirms the previous report on ICS for the Prime.
Apparently, there will be no 3G version of the tablet (at least not in Italy).
The Asus Transformer Prime should arrive in the US before Christmas, obviously running Android 3.2 Honeycomb. It could also be out in Canada before the end of the month, although we’ve heard it may have been delayed there, too.
