Previously, we have seen that Google and HTC have confirmed its smartphones would receive the Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) update. Now, Asus confirms that Android’s latest version called Jelly Bean will be coming to its various tablets. The company’s flagship tablets such as Transformer Pad, Transformer Prime and Transformer Infinity are in the line to get the update to Jelly Bean in the coming months. Asus is also saying, it is till not offering to upgrade the original Eee Pad Transformer or Eee Pad Slider.
Asus did not mention exactly when users will get the latest version of Android. The company only said that it will provide guidelines when the release time-frame of updates will be closer.
Dear valued ASUS customer,
At ASUS, one of the key commitments we make to our customers is a relentless drive to deliver the best user experience. We constantly strive to achieve this goal through our ‘Design Thinking’ philosophy that includes regular software and firmware updates for our products.
We are pleased to announce that many of our tablet products are scheduled to receive an update to Android 4.1, Jelly Bean. The ASUS Transformer Pad, ASUS Transformer Pad Prime and ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity are all scheduled to receive Android 4.1 updates in the coming months. We will provide further guidance on our expected timeframes for these updates near their release.
We are still investigating Jelly Bean updates for other devices, but we are not in a position to confirm whether any other products will be eligible for an update at the moment.
Thank you for your continued support.
