Asus says it will be one of the first with the Android Jelly Bean update
Here's what Asus Corporate VP Benson Lin told TechRadar: "Asus is very close to Google, so once they have Android 5.0 I think there will be a high possibility that we will be the first wave to offer the Jelly Bean update." And, here's the headline that TechRadar put on the article: "Android Jelly Bean could come first from Asus." Does everyone see the disconnect here?

Asus is a great company. I have several phones and several tablets and can honestly say that Asus makes a great product. I bought the original asus transformer with the dock and also have the samsung galaxy tab 10.1 4g and after the ICS ...the transforner is still my favorite tablet. It is blazing fast and has improved with the ICS update. Way faster than my tab ....i also had the ipad and HTC jetstream and the asus is still better in my books. Buid quality was a bit lacking however the new one solved that issue. I only hope Asus will update the transformer to 5.0 as well.. Spec wise it should have enough power to run it so i hope they do.

I'm an Eee Pad Transformer owner as well. I really appreciate Asus getting their update out so quickly. I was quite surprised it came out so soon.
It's interesting how the article mentions that their tablets are not locked to carriers. I don't know how carriers can lock tablets that only have a WiFi version.
Perhaps Asus should approach Google about making the next Nexus phone if they are supposedly so close to Google.
Of all the manufacturers that make Android devices. Asus seems to try to be the most innovative with their hardware. That is the reason I got an Asus tablet over anything else. The keyboard dock is what makes them stand out above all other tablet makers.

Not trying to say they should stop moving foward, but didn't ICS JUST come out?
