ASUS announced on its official Facebook page that the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for Transformer Pad Infinity TF700 and Transformer Prime TF201 will arrive soon. The announcement comes one month after the ASUS Transformer Pad TF300 users have received the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update.
Soon after the Taiwan-based company confirmed the firmware update on the popular social network, ASUS marketing manager Gray Key said that the both Transformer Infinity 700 and Transformer Prime 201 will receive the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update over the next 72 hours.
The deadline only applies for the ASUS Transformer Infinity 700 and Transformer Prime 201 users living in North America, but I am pretty sure that the Europeans will be able to update their devices to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean as late as next Monday or Tuesday.
Unfortunately there’s mention about the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for ASUS Eee Pad Transformer, but, hopefully, the users will be able to upgrade their tablets to the latest Android software version by the end of the fall.
The Android 4.1 Jell Bean update brings new features like Google Now, a virtual assistant that is more appreciated than Apple’s Siri, plus the speed of the Project Butter technology (60 fps in the user interface) and a revamped notifications system.
We are also expecting some bug fixes and performance improvements and I am pretty eager to see how will the quad-core ASUS tablets will run with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean on board.
ASUS Transformer Prime TF201 was announced in October last year and is powered by a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor at 1.3 GHz, has 1 GB of RAM, 32 or 64 GB of internal storage and an 8 megapixel camera with autofocus and full HD video recording support. The 10.1-inch Super IPS+ LCD display has a resolution of 1,280 x 800 pixels.
On the other hand, Transformer Pad Infinity TF700 sports a 10.1-inch display using the same Super IPS + LCD technology, only this time we are dealing with full HD resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels. The tablet was introduced at Mobile World Congress event in February 2012 and packs an Nvidia Tegra 3 chipset based on four Cortex A9 cores clocked at 1.6 GHz, 1 GB of RAM, 32 or 64 GB internal storage expandable via microSD card, plus two cameras, one on the back and one in the front, with 8 and 2 megapixel sensors, respectively.
