Asus has just confirmed that it will be upgrading its Transformer Pad line to Jelly bean "in the coming months." The Transformer Pad, Transformer Prime, and Transformer Pad Infinity are all scheduled to receive the update, and Asus says it will "provide further guidance on our expected timeframes for these updates near their release." It did not confirm whether any other products would receive Android 4.1. Asus was obviously first out of the gate with Jelly Bean on its Nexus 7, and it's great to see more updates, even if it's not necessarily upgrading the oldest member of its Transformer line. Hopefully the new firmware will be free of the bugs that plagued Ice Cream Sandwich on the TF101.

Update: Looks like it's the TF300T, not the TF101, that's getting the upgrade.
