    I really wish them the best of success in the tablet market. The support for the tablets is top notch and much more responsive than any other Android vendor. Reply

    I wish more Android OEM acts like Asus and be responsible to support their devices.

    I hope my TMobile SGS2 gets Jelly Bean too :)

    Seriously, could ASUS be any cooler?

    If they learned to make a halo phone, I'd be all over that shit. And by the time my SGS3 contract runs out in 2014, I seriously hope they will be a titan in the phone space.

    I love this little tablet but I feel Jelly Bean would be an incredible boost for this device. Reply

    As an early TF Prime owner, the device hasn't been without it's glitches, but slowly and surely most of them have been ironed out by regular firmware updates, and I really can't complain about the device at all, even the wireless range isn't that bad on mine!

    With the Tegra 3 based Nexus 7 also being the launch platform for Jellybean, this will only be good news for the Asus Tablets also, as the port should already be quite well optimized and should run great.

    This is what happens when there is no skinning and no carrier to interfere in the update process. Reply

    Asus actually manages to give existing customers some care.

    I will never ever buy a samsung tablet again after seeing and feeling their update strategy which is virtually non existent.
    They'll rather keep new android versions as selling points on new tablets.

    Couldn't they start with rolling out the rest of the Infinity series? ^^ That is, the 3G version with Krait? I still can't order it from anywhere... Reply

    Since I have my TF201 I've received regular updates up to the latest .28, and actually I was surprised to receive my GPS dongle within just two days (even though I live in Saudi Arabia), their support team are welcoming and nice although I didn't need them yet.
    I just ordered a TF300 for my wife a couple of days before, and will get two Nexus 7's for my daughters whenever they are available here, so they can throw away that Arcos crap.
    And now Jelly Bean update!!! I like :-)
    That's the way companies get their loyal customers.
    Where are Samsung?? I can't find them.

    Seriously, the web is not ready to be surfed without Flash. I want flash.
    Otherwise I might as well buy an iPad 3! In 2 years maybe,but not now.

    Too many video websites (networks like NBC,ABC, CNN etc) still use flash.
    Also Yahoo finance has Flash charts and so many other things.
    Restaurants have menus in Flash, the list goes on...

    I hope I can turn the 4.1 update off.

    Someone remind me pls, what is that must have killer feature in 4.1? Smoother UI?

    Too many websites then that need to move with the times and start rolling out HTML5 instead.

    Seriously, Flash was never a great fit for mobile devices, and if Adobe don't even want to support it on Android any more, then so be it. Let it die a Norse death, set it on fire and let it sail away into the distance.

    So far flash works for me on mobile. I have no problems.

    Ok, I agree websites need to switch to HTML5, but they haven't.
    Thats why I said maybe in 2 years all major sites have dropped Flash but I am talking about NOW and there is just too much Flash still out there.

    I have not seen smooth HD fullscreen 1080p HTML5 video. Please give me a link!

    Remember Stage6? It had 1080p before YouTube even considered it... nothing to do with HTML5 though..

    Ahh, Stage6.. a shame it was insanely unsustainable..

    Many Jelly Bean users reported you are able to get flash install and work.

    Besides Project Butter, there's the Google Now, I'm very interest in it too, although it can be somewhat "creepy".

    You can always side load it, Also flash update/ support officially has been stopped. But that doesn't mean the 11.x flash wont run.

    And yes i agree, That we are not ready for "without" flash web. But someone has to take the pain of this transition. And in this case, We are that generation who will take this pain of half baked html websites or broken flash plugins.

    I am amazed by Asus' support to my Asus Transformer Pad! It more than a year old and it rocks! Thanks to the super fast ICS upgrade! To be frank I never JB to make it to my Transformer pad! Now suddenly I want to an android phone from Asus as well :D
    Asus is great :D They will be even faster with JB since Nexus 7 is made by Asus themselves :D
