Remember the story when Amazon canceled all preorders for the ASUS Transformer Prime because of “lack of availability”? Well, now they’ll be making up for this by once again allowing preorders starting December 19th at 12 am. Hopefully, this time they will last longer and really offer enough units for everyone.

I must remind you that this is the world’s first quad core Tegra 3 tablet with a 10.1 inch display and 32GB of internal memory. The price tag is $500 and I sure wonder if this amount will include the keyboard dock or not. In the countries where the product was announced or made available for preorder, the price applies to the dock + tablet combo and ASUS promised they won’t sell the keyboard separately. At the time I’m writing this article, the item is listed as “temporarily out of stock”, so it seems that everyone rushed to get their units.

No shipping dates were mentioned here, but I sure hope the device is coming soon, because it would be nasty to receive it after Christmas, don’t you think?
