Asus to release 3G Transformer Prime tablets after all

Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime 3G

 

Update January 16th 2012:  Asus has stated that there will be no 3G version of the Asus Transformer Prime as reported earlier. This was confirmed by Asustek Taiwan as well as Asus Benelux. Asustek Taiwan stated that "no such product exists on its current roadmap,". Asus Benelux, as reported by Tablets Magazine gave a rather odd and obvious reply

"As for the Netherlands, there are no plans for a Transformer Prime 3G just yet, but technically it is possible to produce one."

 

In December Asus Germany confirmed that Asus won't release any 3G version Transformer Primes because of low demand for 3G tablets. . Today, however, Asus Benelux (Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg) revealed during the presentation of the Asus Transformer Prime, that within a few months we can expect 3G models to be released. The exact release date and price weren't mentioned.

Other things that were mentioned are that a bootloader unlocker is expected to arrive in februari, enabling the installation of a custom ROM. And there won't be any models with a storage capacity lower than 32 GB.

This news causes me to doubt my decision to buy the older 3G Asus Eee Pad Transformer (WiFi is not always available where I live). Maybe I should wait for the newer version
