ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime could be delayed until December due to update to Ice Cream Sandwich

We all want the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime. Not only is it another one of the high-end tablet devices from ASUS, but it’s also the world’s first quad-core tablet to hit the market. That is, it probably would have been had the original November launch date panned out. But, if a new report from DigiTimes is to be believed, that may not be the case anymore.

According to the report, Google is working hand-in-hand with ASUS to make sure that the impressive tablet is packing the latest software, so that it isn’t hindered by all that talk of “out-dated software” once it launches, even despite the impressive hardware specifications. However, due to Google’s involvement with the upgrade, and the fact that the tablet was ready to ship with Honeycomb, it looks like the device could be delayed until December.

Of course a delay is never good, but we never had an exact launch date to begin with (not officially, anyway), so we may not actually be looking at a delay at all. This could have been ASUS’ and Google’s plan from the get-go. But, if there is a delay, launching it in December isn’t that big of a deal, especially with Christmas shopping running rampant. Who wouldn’t want a Transformer Prime waiting for them this holiday season?
