ASUS confirms: Jelly bean coming to Transformer Pad, Prime, and Pad Infinity


We told you earlier this week that ASUS Germany had hinted that a Jellybean update was “currently planned” for The Eee Pad Slider and the Eee Pad Transformer. Now ASUS has confirmed to Droid-Life that Android 4.1 Jelly Bean will be rolling out to the Transformer Pad, the Transformer Prime, and the Transformer Pad Infinity in “the coming months”.

The text of the letter reads:



Given that the letter promises an updated timeline once the OTA’s get closer to their release date, we suspect that like most OEMs ASUS is still trying to figure out how quickly they can port Jelly Bean to their ICS-based devices. It appears that the process should be much faster than the update cycle from Gingerbread to ICS, but that’s not really saying much.

At those of you who bought ASUS’s recent tablet models know that your purchase is future-proofed for a while yet.

My Transformer pad is awesome with 4.0.3 I can't wait to see 4.1 updated. I really don't plan on rooting the tablet like I did to my phones
