Why's it so hard to get an Asus Transformer Prime?

What's causing the Asus Transformer Prime shortages? Is it selling loads or in short supply? Or a bit of both!?

A "bit of both" would be my guess... and hey, it's a recession. People are short of cash; Android tabs are not selling massively (the semi-Android Kindle Fire aside); suppliers and retailers avoid overstocking, and news such as the bit below doesn't help ;)

TAIWANESE GADGET MAKER Asus has again denied that there are hardware problems with its Transformer Prime hybrid tablet.

The firm has said this in response to online retailer Clove pulling the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich tablet from its web site. Clove said yesterday that it found problems with the WiFi and GPS, so it wasn't happy to send the device out to customers who had pre-ordered.

Clove said, "We did some random testing on the stock and yes the main factors taken into consideration were WiFi and GPS."
