UK retailer withdraws Transformer Prime, blames 'faults' and stock availability
British retailer Clove Technology has taken the ASUS Transformer Prime off sale today, saying "faults" reported by customers and difficulty in obtaining stock are behind the decision.
In a post on its official blog, Clove says stock levels have been a "real issue", and despite being able to obtain some Transformer Prime units earlier than expected, it's decided to withdraw the tablet from sale due to complaints of faults in some units.
The news will come as a blow to ASUS, which has already seen the Transformer Prime's launch tainted by poor availability and reports of GPS and Wifi issues in some units. ASUS has insisted that none of the Transformer Prime models sold in the UK are affected, so it's particularly surprising to see a UK retailer pulling the device from sale for this reason. It's also worth noting that Clove is the first retailer to take such a drastic step, and that the Prime remains on sale at other outlets.
