Just received an email from newegg.
It’s with regret that we are contacting you today to inform you that the pre-order you placed for the ASUS Transformer Prime Tablet will not be fulfilled on the date initially estimated. Due to unforeseen circumstances, Newegg will receive limited inventory for this tablet.
Within the next 2 business weeks, we will have confirmation of inventory and whether or not we will be able to fulfill your pre-order. Pre-orders will be fulfilled on a first come first serve basis beginning with the earliest pre-order placed. If sufficient inventory is received, your pre-order will convert into an actual sales order and begin the normal order process. In the unlikely event we cannot obtain sufficient inventory, you will receive a Back Order Notification email and your pre-order will be voided.
We understand this may cause some inconvenience. If you are no longer interested in this product, you may void your pre-order online through your account. If you are willing to wait, there is no further action necessary on your part. In that case, once inventory is received we will transfer your pre-order into a sales order, charge your chosen form of payment, and ship your product once inventory is received.
We deeply apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. If you have any further questions regarding this issue, please do not hesitate to contact Newegg Customer Support at (800) 390-1119 or through the internet using our Live Chat option, or Customer Support Email.
I placed my pre-order on November 28, 2011. Lets see if we actually get these. It’s nice of them to finally send an email to those who pre-ordered this item, after many people have been emailing them asking for any information on shipments and being kept in the dark.
January 3, 2012 Update:
I have cancelled my pre-order with Newegg and ordered from Office Depot. Three day delivery, in stock. Will be here Thursday, January 5th.
