Asus Eee Pad Transformer and Eee Pad Slider will be updated to Jelly Bean

Asus Eee Pad Transformer and Eee Pad Slider will be updated to Jelly Bean
According to information that surfaced from the land of Oktoberfest, the old-school Asus Eee Pad Transformer will be updated to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Word comes from the Facebook page of Asus Germany, where the company confirmed that an update is being brewed. Jelly Bean will also be released for the funkier Asus Eee Pad Slider

Here is an excerpt from the statement itself: "According to current knowledge, and users of older TF101/SL101 enjoy an Android 4.1 update will come." Yeah, Google Translate is not perfect yet, but the translation is good enough for us to get the idea.

Unfortunately, there are no hints as to when the update will start rolling out, but it is better knowing that it is surely coming instead of being kept in the dark on the matter. Any Eee Pad Transformer and Slider users excited?

Wow just root your Prime & you can have Android 4.1 Jelly Bean VERY, VERY soon. I can confirm that Cyanogen Mod 10 is officially under construction. They are saying that hopefully by the end of this month CM10 WILL be out, ESPECIALLY for the Prime.

When I first saw Asus was making the Nexus 7, I figured my beloved Transformer would be getting some JB. Asus gets it, they update their products in a very timely manner.

I am cautiously optimistic. I appreciate that Asus is updating my TF101 with JB at some time. What I ask is that they take time to ensure that it does not have any major issues. I and a number of other TF101 users experienced some issues with ICS that took 3 months before an update fixed it. I would rather wait 3 months for a more stable version of JB than suffer through another 3 months of annoying issues. I do appreciate Asus making every effort in updating their devices. Google chose to parter with Asus on the Nexus 7 due to their ability to come up with a product very quickly. It seems they have noticed how quickly Asus came up with the ICS update to the TF101 even before the Xoom got theirs.
