ASUS is following through on a promised they made last month to bring Jelly Bean to their tablets. According to a post on their Facebook wall the first tablet to be graced with OS 4.1.1 is the Transformer Pad TF300. This was released in Canada last in May and ASUS also states they’ve added a new power saving options, global file search and unknown “improvements to the pre-installed apps.” The upgrade should be waiting for those who have the 10-inch tablet OTA, check Settings > System Firmware Update > Check Update.

As for the other Transformer Pad Series tablets, ASIS will be upgrading those to Jelly Bean sometime “in the near future.”

    And this is why I love Asus. the TF300 is the best budget 10′ tablet because Asus cares about their users and actually gives them speedy updates.

      That’s fine and dandy. Kudos to Asus for spoiling all you TF300 owners with some yummy Jelly Beans. Now, ASUS, how about your other tablet owners? I happen to possess an original (TF101) and the sweet one (TF700). No Jelly Bean on either. I’d love to see how the Infinity will work with v4.1. I drool…and drool…all over this tablet. With Jelly Bean this will be beyond super sweet.

  • Beso

    You would assume that the Infinity should be their #1 piority instead of the older tablets!

    Asus upgrades their devices and nothing yet on my Motorola devices. Still waiting for ics on them.

  • Dominique

  • antirobbers

    See motorola? this is how it’s done.

  • Acco

    ASIS? Come now, I’m sure that’s not how it’s spelled. ;p

  • aman bassi

    jb is nice and all but the update turns off flash support, which sucks considering that this is an extreemly powerful device perfectly capable of running flash, kinda sucks

  • Trevor

    If you want Flash on JB you can side load the apk and it’ll run fine! Use it often on the Galaxy Nexus.

  • haxor99

    Wish Samsung Canada would push jelly been through to nexus users!!! Good job Asus

    No update available on my TF300T in Calgary this morning. I’m hoping the Exchange problem with the e-mail client gets resolved.
