ASUS Padfone users can finally cut the cake now. It is confirmed, the Android v4.1 Jelly Bean update is being pushed right now for all the ASUS Padfone users.
With a pretty nice combo of a tablet and mobile, the ASUS Padfone never really got the success it deserved. Of course, ASUS did manage to sell a few pieces back in the day, but we are talking about success that is comparable to the likes of Samsung Galaxy S series or the iPhone series, if not equal.
Nevertheless, the new update brings Padfone to Android v4.1.1 Jelly Bean. According to the reports there are apparently two versions of this update, the first one is the worldwide version while the other one is a Chinese version.
The change log says that the update is going to come with some other ASUS goodies, other than the goodness which Android v4.1 Jelly Bean packs with itself. Some of these goodies include a new and improved file manager, new camera functions(yay!), scrapbook functions and finally the ability to support NTFS and EX FAT format SD cards. But we think you are hardly going to notice any of the above in comparison to Project Butter and Google Now.
The update is a rather heavy one with weighing about 579 MegaBytes of memory, so you would probably want to make sure that you are on a stable WiFi network before you start updating your ASUS Padfone. At this point, it is probably needless to remind you but just for the sake of formality, make sure that your device has at least 50% battery while installing the update because if due to any reason your device gets switched off while the update is getting installed, you might get two new paper weights in the form of a phone and a tablet.
