Asus Jelly Bean Announcement Reveals TF300 Update Already

Well, we started taking bets on what the Asus Jelly Bean teaser was all about, but before everyone got to the bookies the news was out. Spoilsports!

If you’re the lucky owner of an Asus Transformer TF300 and you live in North America you will soon be getting an over the air update to Jelly Bean 4.1.1.

The announcement was made via their Facebook page and reads thus:

Dear Valued ASUS Customers,

We are pleased to announce that we will be rolling out a major software update for the ASUS Transformer Pad TF300, which will bring Android™ 4.1, Jelly Bean to the device for the first time in North America. In addition to this being the first of our planned Jelly Bean updates for the Transformer Series, we have also added a range of new features, including new power saving options, global file search and several improvements to the pre-installed apps.

We will announce Jelly Bean update plans for other Transformer Pad Series devices in the near future, so stay tuned.

Thank you for your continued support.


All very exciting, and it acts as a further tease to the rest of the world as to when the the international TF300 and the rest of the Transformer series will be updated. One thing’s for sure, if they’re not quick the custom ROM community will have the stock update to us first!
