Asus confirms Jelly Bean is coming to Transformer tablets
Asus' tablets will see Android Jelly Bean at some point in the next few months.
Asus sent out a note confirming the update, BGR reports. This follows in announcing Android 4.1 would hit its One X and phones. Once again though, HTC was disconcertingly vague when it came to naming the date.
"We are pleased to announce that many of our tablet products are scheduled to receive an update to Android 4.1, Jelly Bean," reads the note. "The Asus Transformer Pad, Asus Transformer Pad Prime and Asus Transformer Pad Infinity are all scheduled to receive Android 4.1 updates in the coming months. We will provide further guidance on our expected timeframes for these updates near their release."
And what about the rest of Asus' product portfolio?
Asus went on to say: "We are still investigating Jelly Bean updates for other devices, but we are not in a position to confirm whether any other products will be eligible for an update at the moment."
The company manufacturestablet, which runs Jelly Bean out of the box, so you'd expect it to be first in the queue for the update (as it was for Honeycomb).

It , yet the only Moto device confirmed to get the update is the tablet, which has been surpassed by the , making the reasoning behind the rollout anyone's guess.
HTC confirmed the One X and One S will get Jelly Bean, but didn't give a date. And everyone else is staying pretty quiet on the matter, giving a lot of verbiage about 'supporting the latest updates', but failing to give any concrete details. Though Googlethe will have the update before too long.
