ASUS has always impressed us with their responsive Android tablets; the Transformer Prime was the first non-Google Android device to get an official update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich earlier in the year. While I have been skeptical of ASUS continuing this feat considering their rapidly expanding inventory of Android tablets they seek to prove me wrong.
ASUS Germany has confirmed that their entire Android tablet range (past and present) will be updated to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. This will include the Transformer Prime (review), Transformer Pad (review), Transformer Infinity, Eee Pad Transformer and the Eee Pad Slider.
Here is the full statement from ASUS Germany translated via Google:
“We need to deny this clear. Colleagues from the Netherlands have made no statement about TF101/SL101, but merely confirms that a Jelly Bean TF201/TF300/TF700 update be received. The converse, that is not TF101/SL101 JB update will be false and pure speculation. According to current knowledge, and users of older TF101/SL101 enjoy an Android 4.1 update will come.”
KitGuru says: ASUS, you are without doubt our favourite Android tablet manufacturer.
