ASUS to update Transformer tablets to Jelly Bean OS

ASUS has informed their clients that their Transformer Tablets will soon be powered by Google’s latest Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system.
Google teamed up with ASUS to develop their Nexus 7 tablets, which already carriy the Jelly Bean OS.

With the Nexus 7 considered as one great product due to its OS update, ASUS will be rolling out their own Jelly Bean updates on their very own products that includes the Transofrmer Prime, Pad and Pad Infinity.

Unfortunately for Transformer Slide and the very first Transformer tablet, they are not included in the update roll out. But ASUS is planning to update these older tablets some time in the future.

ASUS is considered as one of the pioneering companies to run their tablets on the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
The notice to their clientele read, “We are pleased to announce that many of our tablet products are scheduled to receive an update to Android 4.1, Jelly Bean. 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.”

Nexus 7 tablet by Google gets sold-out on pre-sale!

Google seems to be satisfied until now with the pre-sales of the Nexus 7 tablet, which makes them create its first commercial.

In the video “Nexus 7: camping” we see a father and son moment in the woods, being accompanied of course by a Nexus 7 tablet. One might say that the commercial is not anything special. Other might notice that it manages to show our addiction to technology. Others even take this addiction for granted , since the anticipation for the Nexus 7 tablet is already high.

According to a recent post by Google, shipments of the 16GB Nexus 7 tablet will be delayed, due to its high demand. Many eshops that were accepting pre-sale orders are already out of stock for the 16GB version, which is sold for 249$, although you can still pre-order the 8GB version, for only 199$.

Even though we are not yet sure of the impressions on the Nexus 7 tablet and whether it will be a successful tablet, in terms of performance, Google seems to have achieved the first goal, making the customers pre-ordering it like crazy.

What about you? Are you considering buying it? Should we trust Google and order it?
