Asus Confirms Transformer Line-Up Will Get Android 4.1 Jelly Bean Update Including TF101

While majority of OEM makers have failed to capture the market with their Android tablets, Asus has had a runaway success with its Transformer series of Android tablets. The company had the most popular Android tablet in 2011 with the original Transformer, and this year looks no different with the Transformer Prime, Infinity and the recently released Nexus 7. One key reason behind Asus being successful in the tablet market is because of its ability to roll-out Android OS updates quickly for its devices, apart from regular software updates that the company rolls out.

However, rumors srtared rolling out over the last couple of days that Asus will not be upgrading the original Transformer to Jelly Bean. Rightfully so, this angered a lot of Transformer users since the TF101 has more than enough horsepower to run Jelly Bean smoothly. In a bid to keep its consumers happy and clear things up, Asus has gone ahead and confirmed via a comment on its Facebook page that its Transformer line-up of tablets will be getting the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update. This includes the original Transformer, the Transformer Infinity, Eee Pad Slider and the Transformer Prime.

Looking at Asus past software update record, expect the Transformer tablets to be among the first Android devices to taste Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
