Asus confirmed via their social networks earlier today that the Transformer Pad Infinity and Transformer Prime were set to receive Jelly Bean in the coming weeks. They told us to stay tuned for further updates and like clockwork, the Taiwanese manufacturer has provided a mini-changelog of sorts, so that Transformer users know exactly what to expect in the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Let’s take a look:

  • Upgrade OS from Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) to Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean)
  • Default enable System Bar Lock
  • Add Multiple Photo Selection feature
  • Support Connect Dock (Accessory)
  • Remove Adobe Flash support
  • Remove Wi-Fi Direct function support
  • Remove Press Reader (still available in the Play Store)

As far as when users can expect the rollout to take place here in the US, Asus is planning Tomorrow, September 27th for the Transformer Prime, followed by Friday, Sept. 28th, for the Infinity. Time to hit up Craigslist to see if I can find a Transformer Infinity Pad on the cheap.

Thanks, Aiman!
