ASUS has started rolling out the Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean update for the Padfone 2 in certain regions of the world. The company had released the Padfone 2 back in October and promised to update the device to Jelly Bean before the end of this year.
The Jelly Bean update for the Padfone 2 brings some Project Butter goodness, Google Now, enhanced notification bar, and more. The Padfone 2 runs on a relatively light skinned version of Android, and the Jelly Bean update does not change that. The usual ASUS applications are all included in the update including free 50GB of cloud storage space.
The Padfone 2 is one impressive handset, especially when coupled with its dock. However, the handset cannot be termed a success mainly because of its limited market availability, and the high pricing.
With the Jelly Bean update for the Padfone 2, ASUS continues its impressive track record of providing timely software updates for its devices. The company has already updated its tablets to Jelly Bean, and is working hard on bringing the Android 4.2 update to them before the year-end.
