Asus confirms Eee Pad Transformer series upgrade to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, TF101 & Slider SL101 still left out in the cold

After a really confusing situation among Asus employees, who apparently said during a conference in  Holland that the Eee Pad Transformer TF101 and Slider SL101 will not get an upgrade to Jelly Bean, while Asus Germany denied that they even made that statement at all, saying that it was a misunderstanding.

The Taiwanese company through an email sent out to AnandTech said that the Eee Pad Transformer series: “ASUS Transformer Pad (TF300), ASUS Transformer Pad Prime (TF201) and ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity (TF700) are all scheduled to receive Android 4.1 updates in the coming months.”

However this email doesn’t say anything about the Eee Pad Slider SL101 nor Asus Transformer Original TF101 tablet being scheduled for an upgrade to Android 4.1 OS does it. Below is the full content of the email sent by Asus.

Dear valued ASUS customer,

At ASUS, one of the key commitments we make to our customers is a relentless drive to deliver the best user experience. We constantly strive to achieve this goal through our ‘Design Thinking’ philosophy that includes regular software and firmware updates for our products.

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.

We are still investigating Jelly Bean updates for other devices, but we are not in a position to confirm whether any other products will be eligible for an update at the moment.

Thank you for your continued support.

ASUS
