Clove takes Asus Transformer Prime off sale

Clove takes Asus Transformer Prime off saleIt’s been a rocky road for the Asus Transformer Prime. We’ve had complaints of Wi-Fi issues, pre-order woes in the US and UK, and Hasbro took umbrage with the tablet’s Optimus Prime-inspired name.

Now online retailer Clove has stuck the boot in by removing the Asus Transformer Prime from sale entirely.

Writing on its blog, Clove explains: “Stock supply has been a real issue and good levels of stock are not expected until late February/March.

“However we have been able to obtain some stock sooner than expected; but because of complaints of faults with the model we took the decision to thoroughly test stock before fulfilling any orders.

“We are at this time not satisfied that all units we could provide you with are working correctly, and performing to the standard we expect of the unit.

“We have therefore taken the decision until further notice stop selling the ASUS Transformer Prime.”

We suspect “obtain some stock” means Clove imported units from elsewhere; the Wi-Fi problem isn’t thought to be an issue on the UK model of the Asus Transformer Prime.

No stock till late February/March, huh? By which point a certain other tablet might’ve popped up…
