ASUS Transformer Pad 300 getting Android 4.1 Jelly Bean today

Great news for all the Transformer owners this weekend. ASUS has officially started the update rollout of Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean for the ASUS Transformer Pad TF300. We are still waiting for it to arrive for our tablet here, but we've received multiple reports confirming the update is in fact live. Get ready for that Jelly Bean.

From the multiple tips we've received this afternoon (thanks guys) to the folks over at XDA Developers this is in fact available now. ASUS said it was coming, but it's already here. It appears that multiple users across the US have already been updated as of late last night to Jelly Bean.

ASUS worked closely with Google on the Nexus 7 tablet so it only makes sense they'd be the first to update to the new and improved OS, not to mention ASUS has been on the top of their game with updates as of late. They were extremely quick to Ice Cream Sandwich, and now the same is happening with Jelly Bean. ASUS has confirmed Android 4.1 for the Transformer Prime, Infinity 700 series soon, as well as the TF300 getting it today. Most likely the original will still get updated too, but is last on their list.

According to the official ASUS Facebook page, the update is rolling out today for North America, but that doesn't include Canada. Android 4.1 Jelly Bean brings all the awesome new notification features, Google Now, and everything else we loved in our Nexus 7 Jelly Bean Review. The update should be arriving for all you TF300 users as we speak, so I'd be checking for updates right about now. Enjoy and let us know how you like that Jelly Bean running on the Tegra 3 quad-core.

    Cautious optimism in timely upgrades was a big part of the reason I went with Asus for my first tablet. Very nice. I just wish there were a handset manufacturer with half as good a track record. (It does look like Samsung may be getting much better, at least for its flagship Galaxy S phones.)

    Jelly Bean installation an absolute disaster – tablet applications now crashing several times per minute. Very disappointed.

    Haven’t updated my Transformer yet, I will be checking for the update though. I use my Transformer everyday on my commute to my job at Dish. It’s great: the size is just about perfect though some days I wish I have a 17” tablet to watch movies on, and it’s so easy to watch my favorite TV shows streamed directly to my Transformer via Dish Online. There is a great selection of movies and TV I can access from anywhere I have internet access.
