The Quad-Core (Tegra 3) Transformer Prime TF201 manufactured by ASUS is the successor to the original Eee Pad Transformer tablet that was based on Tegra 2. The TF201 was definitely among the most sought after devices at launch but little by little a number of issues (Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS) started to emerge.
According to an ASUS UK update, users dissatisfied with the performance of the TF201’s GPS module can return affected units and get a full refund. Apparently those who wish to keep their Prime at home can get a warranty extension “from 12 to 18 months”.
The maker has also disclosed that the much anticipated TF700 model (you can see our CES hands-on video here) will be making its UK debut at some point in June of 2012. This upcoming tablet will presumably feature a redesigned back as a result of the many wireless signal issues that the aluminium body of the TF201 was causing. In addition, the TF700 will be equipped with a Full HD display that has a native resolution of 1920-by-1200 pixels.
