Asus has confirmed that the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update will be available for the Asus Transformer Prime, Asus Transformer Pad and the Asus Transformer Pad Infinity in the coming months.
Asus also shared the following statement:
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.
Given Google’s new approach in releasing Android updates to OEMs we expect Jelly Bean to arrive much faster than ICS. The good news is that owners of one of the mentioned tablets can be assured that their investments are future proof for the near future at least.
