Apparently, the ASUS Transformer Prime has been facing some problems with its hardware and Wi-Fi capabilities. Till now, rumour had it that the device was not ready and its launch was postponed to next year, despite all the confirmed pre-orders. It turns out that all the talk was just speculative, as ASUS released an official statement verifying the tablet’s position.

An ASUS representative told Androidcommunity, “We are trying to confirm who released this statement and for what purpose right now. At this point, we still show to be on schedule to start shipments the week of 12/19. I will provide an update once I have additional information.”

The Transformer Prime is all set to take the tablet world by storm with its launch later this month. It has some pretty impressive features including the powerful Tegra 3 processor with its 4 cores. 1024 MB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage make this one of the most desirable devices in the market right now.

ASUS’s latest offering sports a 10.1’’ screen with a resolution of 1280 x 800p. It has an 8MP rear facing camera and a smaller front facing one.  Its main camera is equipped with auto focus, flash and HD video recording capabilities. The tablet offers Wi-Fi, GPS and Bluetooth connectivity.

The world has been waiting for the Transformer Prime for a while now, even before it was officially announced. It will be a real shame indeed if it doesn’t make it to retail stores in time for the holiday season.
