Asus has one of the best track records when it comes to delivering prompt Android updates for its hardware and that trend continues with recently released software updates for both the Transformer Prime and Transformer Pad Infinity. Both tablets have been upgraded to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, granting users all the benefits of Google's latest OS revision. Those include improved, "buttery" performance, expandable notifications, and perhaps the biggest addition of all: Google Now.
These Asus slates are among the first crop of tablet devices to receive Jelly Bean; the company kicked off the update process back in August when it pushed Android 4.1 out to its TF300 Transformer Pad. Other manufacturers haven't maintained such an impressive rollout schedule. Motorola, for instance, has yet to officially update the 4G-enabled Xoom tablet — though Verizon likely shares some responsibility for that lengthy delay. Nevertheless, Transformer Prime and Infinity Pad owners can head into the settings menu to trigger the latest update.
