ASUS Transformer Prime pre-orders available from EXPANSYS

ASUS and their hotly anticipated quad-core tablet the Transformer Prime has been causing a bit of a stir lately. Selling out everywhere before it's even available and multiple online retailers having to turn away pre-orders. I know many of our readers have been looking for a place to order so today we have some great news -- Expansys-USA has opened up pre-orders and you can get one now, but you'd better hurry.

What's even better is the fact they are also allowing a coupon code making the Prime just $480 for the 32GB version. Just apply the coupon “20OFFLS” at checkout and you'll have the best deal around -- on the best tablet around. The online retailer isn't listing quantity like the did with the Galaxy Nexus, or a shipping date but at least they'll throw in free shipping.

A few recent rumors went around that the Prime was being delayed for WiFi issues but we experienced zero issues while enjoying it for a full review. All the details and more are available below from our new Story Timeline. We have heard scattered reports that Canada's supply might be a bit low and delayed but last we heard from ASUS everything was on track and as planned for the US.

Head down to EXPANSYS if you are still interested in a pre-order before they are all gone.

    Just an FYI, you will need to add another item if you get the 32GB.. The coupon code only works with orders over $500 ($499.99 doesn’t count).  Also, I saw no option for overnight shipping if you are into that.

      ahhh.. Thanks for the information. Add a $4.00 micro-HDMI cable so you can stream to your HDTV — then use the coupon code!

    It looks like they do NOT have the keyboard dock available for the Prime.  (Unless I’m overlooking it somehow.)

    Thanks for the post. I pre-ordered from Amazon and it says it will arrive January 18th with the Dock arriving Jan 6th. Just my luck to get the dock first…

    So last night I pre-ordered with Expansys thanks to your post and this morning they said that they expect to receive their shipments on December 23rd. No word from them yet on getting a Saturday delivery so I may not get it for Xmas but I would be fine with getting it on the 26th.

    Since they do not sell the dock I will just keep my Amazon pre-order for that and cancel the Amazon order for the tablet (after making sure that I receive my tablet from Expansys first of course).

    Hope that helps someone else who’s on the fence. I haven’t heard of Expansys before but so far they seem to be legit and were very honest about the ship date with me.

      I ordered the tablet yesterday, but never got any e-mail today saying that the tablet will ship. Anyone else in the dark for this?

        The conformation email that I got from them stated, “This will be processed when stock is recieved and a further email sent confirming pricing”

  • Jdbaker82

    Figured I would let you guys know I talked to Expansys today and their orders are delayed until Jan 20th so I cancelled my pre order…. what good is a pre order if you dont get it until everyone will have them in stock anyway this was a waste of time.

    The Expansys experience really stank. You should write on how poorly they lived up to their promise. And NEVER advertise another of their promotions.
