The ASUS Transformer Prime Tablet Gets Jellybean Upgrade

Boasting high- end features, ASUS tablet family is one of the finest Android (News - Alert) tablets for work and play. The product line-up including Transformer Pad, Prime and Infinity has consistently upgraded itself with the release of the latest Android OS versions.

Originally launching on Gingerbread software from Google (News - Alert) back in November 2011, the ASUS Transformer Prime has undergone a subsequent upgrade following Android’s Ice Cream Sandwich update. With Android ‘s latest Jelly Bean update, ASUS is all set to release the latest version of Transformer Prime powered by of Jelly Bean software.

On its Sweden Facebook (News - Alert) page, ASUS announced that the Jelly Bean update for its Transformer Prime is apparently rolling out in the Sweden area and will be getting around to the rest of the world and the United States shortly after. 

At the initial stage, the Jelly Bean update is 100 percent optional and those, happy with their ASUS Transformer Prime running the Ice Cream Sandwich software, can stick to the previous version. Apparently, most of the members of the Android community waste no time in upgrading to the newer versions and for them the software is ready for download.

However, the company did not provide any sort of roadmap or release dates for other countries at this time, but it is not likely that the company will keep the rest of the world in waiting for too long.

Powered by a very fast, quad-core processor made by Nvidia, a 12-core GeForce graphics processor, 1GB of RAM (News - Alert) and 64 GB internal storage, the ASUS Transformer Prime is easily one of the best Android tablets currently available in the market.   The tablet is also equipped with 8MP camera with LED flash and a F2.4 lens.

The updated software will bring some enhancements to Transformer prime like new user interface, a Google app drawer, improved browser, camera features and enhanced notification bar. Two features that are removed with the update include Adobe Flash and Wi-Fi Direct.

Back in July, Google revealed it will be launching its Nexus Tablet on Android Jellybean. The device was expected to be in direct competition with Amazon’s Kindle Fire.
