Asus will be rolling out an Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update to its Transformer Pad TF300 tablet.
The Taiwanese tablet maker announced the good news on its Facebook page and said that the Jelly Bean software update will first arrive in the US, but did not include a specific date.
“We are pleased to announce that we will be rolling out a major software update for the Asus Transformer Pad TF300, which will bring Android 4.1, Jelly Bean to the device for the first time in North America,” the post reads.
That Asus brought in the latest version of Android OS to its cheaper tablet ahead of its older, more powerful Transformer Prime TF201 flagship tablet remains a mystery. However, the company assured that it will reveal future plans on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, so it’s safe to assume all of its high-end tablets will receive the update going forward.
The Transformer Pad TF300 features an Nvidia Tegra 3 chip with a quad-core processor, a 10-inch screen and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, all at the price of £399 (around $625).
Asus is likely to launch its latest, most powerful tablet, the Transformer Pad Infinity TF700, which will reatail at stores for £599 ($940). The Infinity touts a HD (1920×1200 pixels) resolution display, a 10.1-inch Super IPS+ screen, an Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor, 1 GB of RAM and 32/64 GB internal storage.
