We haven’t heard much from the folks at ASUS regarding their unique and original PadFone tablet, but today the hybrid device is getting an update to Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean. After the original was overlooked and ASUS updated the PadFone 2 to Jelly Bean back in December, those early adopters are getting the treat today according to reports.
ASUS now has three PadFone’s out and about, and the FonePad is coming soon too, but that’s a discussion for another day. All those enjoying the original ASUS Padfone will be happy to know that today’s update isn’t just a bump to Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean, but they’ve also fixed a few bugs and issues many users have been reporting.
According to AndroidGeeks the update will bring your Padfone to Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean, but then you can also expect improved dictionary and keyboard operation, better camera previews, and the scrapbook feature with the stylus has also been improved. Then according to the official changelog from ASUS they’ve also fixed that ongoing volume key problem, and added a new File Manager app.
According to the official ASUS page linked to below the update is rolling out as we speak, and is also available for download. However, this appears to only show two versions available. One being worldwide, and the other for China. If you’re rocking the original Padfone give the update a try and let us know how it goes.
