Original ASUS Padfone Getting Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean Update
By on March 24th, 2013

ASUS has started rolling out the Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean update for the first-generation Padfone, which the company had unveiled at last year’s Mobile World Congress.

The Jelly Bean update for the original Padfone will bring with it Project Butter, Google Now, enhanced voice recognition with offline voice-to-text support, and minor UI improvements. ASUS has also taken this opportunity to tweak the camera performance and application, and bundled in an improved File Manager and support for NTFS and FAT formatted microSD cards.

ASUS is not really known for rolling out software updates to its devices via OTA, and the hefty Android 4.1.1 JB update for the original Padfone needs to be downloaded from the Taiwanese marker’s website.

It was only last month that ASUS had unveiled the PadFone Infinity at MWC in Barcelona. While the Padfone coupled with its docking accessory, now known as the FonePad, is really a nice idea, ASUS has consistently failed to execute it properly with limited availability of the handset(s) and extremely high prices.
