Jelly Bean Update Rolling Out To The Asus Transformer Pad TF300

Umm....Asus...is everything ok with you guys? Feeling well? Sorry, but after reading the news that the Transformer Pad TF300 is receiving the Jelly Bean update before the Prime and Infinity, I just had to ask. This is naturally great news for owners of the tablet (I'm happy for you..really!), but owners of the Infinity and Prime (myself included) are kind of wondering WHY the TF300 received it before they/we did.

The TF300 is basically a cheaper version of the Prime, and a much cheaper version of the Infinity. It came out after the Transformer Prime, and is also a quad core Tegra 3 device. The tablets are very similar (as is the Infinity, which is the current flagship tablet from ASUS), which really makes me wonder why the Prime hasn’t seen the update.

But I’m not complaining :-D If you happen to own the TF300, be sure to head to your “About Tablet” part of your settings and manually check for the update. Hopefully, the Prime and the Infinity will be next to receive the update.

Be sure to let us know how Jelly Bean is working out on your TF300 tablet, and nice job to Asus for getting more devices on the Jelly Bean bandwagon :-D

    Good things come to those who resist the urge to become jealous of others receiving good stuff in the mail. Stop bickering. Atleast ASUS customers are getting jellybean. Samsung customers will maybe get their devices updated next year. Flagship or non flagship. Asus is still a better.

    Nobody is bickering bro :)

    The question is why it received the update before the Prime did. The Prime has literally the same hardware in many ways, and the TF300 is simply a cheaper version of the Prime. It makes sense that they would both receive it at the same time (along with the Infinity), and people wonder why it didn't happen that way.

    Nobody is upset with anyone here :-D

    It makes you wonder why that happened
    In my opinion its because the tf300 has had more sales (maybe not by much) so they would expand to the device that has more people using it
    OR
    the tf300 has simpler hardware then the prime or the infinity, and that the tf300 is first because it will become a base for the remaining tablets

    I completely agree Richard. It costed less, but was still a good quality tablet, which could really be why it got the update first. But I still cant really understand it, as all 3 tablets are SO much alike.

    It's really odd, but I guess Asus has their reasons.
