ASUS began rolling out an Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for the Transformer Prime in Sweden yesterday, and today the company has followed with a statement regarding the rest of the world. Announced via the company’s official Facebook page, ASUS says global users can expect an update to the latest version “soon”. In addition to the Transformer Prime (TF201), the Transformer Pad Infinity (TF700) will also be getting in on the upgrade action. While an exact time frame wasn’t given, the update will reportedly arrive within 72 hours. Considering ASUS tends to make this type of announcement the same week (or even days before) it plans to roll out an update, we have no reason to doubt its legitimacy.
ASUS has undoubtedly been one of the quickest manufacturers in terms of rolling out the latest firmware. Perhaps the jump to Android 4.1 may have taken a little longer than some may have hoped, but it’s better late than never, they say.
