Featured: ASUS rumored to be bringing Android 4.1 – Jelly Bean to the OG Transformer TF101

October 2, 2012 - Written By Alexander Maxham

This afternoon, Mobilesyrup is reporting on a tip they received from a reader. Basically the reader spoke with an American-based Customer Service Representative at ASUS who did say that the original Transformer would be receiving Jelly Bean. Meanwhile we haven’t heard any official statements from ASUS on the update. Hopefully our friends on the Tegra 2-powered Transformer can get some official Jelly Bean love as well.

So far ASUS  has rolled out Jelly Bean to the rest of the Transformer lineup, including the TF201, TF300 and TF700. All of these three run on Tegra 3 processor, which is the same processor in the Nexus 7. And since ASUS worked with Google to get Jelly Bean on the Nexus 7, it’s probably pretty easy to get Jelly Bean on the rest of their tablets.

In anyway, we haven’t lost hope for the original Transformer. Since it does run Ice Cream Sandwich, I’m sure it has the power to run Jelly Bean. But will ASUS roll it out, or stop supporting the device? Only time will tell. Any Transformer owners out there? What do you think about this, are you going to get official Jelly Bean or no?
