Asus has posted an extensive update on its UK blog covering the newly-announced EeePad Transformer Prime TF700 tablet, along with details of how the widely-reported Wifi and GPS issues with the original Transformer Prime TF201 affect UK users.
Firstly, ASUS says that the Wifi problems experienced by some Prime owners stateside don't affect any of the units sold in the UK. And on the subject of GPS woes, the manufacturer reminds Brits that they're entitled by law to return their tablets within 30 days for a full refund. To sweeten the deal for those who choose to keep their TF201, ASUS says it's increasing its standard warranty on the device from 12 to 18 months. If you want to take them up on the offer, check the source link for details of how to extend your warranty.
As for the TF700, the souped-up version of the Prime with a 1080p SuperIPS+ screen, ASUS says that model won't be arriving in the UK until June at the very earliest. So it's bad news bears for Prime fans on this side of the pond, but at least the delay will give prospective buyers the chance to first see what's unveiled at Mobile World Congress next month.
