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.
