ASUS, makers of the tablets-plus-keyboard-docks devices, posted a photo with the Android Droid full of Jelly Beans betwixt the two products Wednesday.
The company posted beneath the photo: "We are pleased to announce that we will soon be rolling out the Android 4.1, Jelly Bean update for both the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity (TF700) and ASUS Transformer Pad Prime (TF201)."
While a nice message, there wasn't an indication of when "soon" would be, until later in the day.
Later Wednesday afternoon, Gary Key, ASUS' technical marketing manager, reportedly took to the XDA-Developers forum to reveal the OS roll-out would be available for U.S. and Canadian users "within the next 72 hours."
If Key's words come true, than owners of the follow ups to the Transformer Pad TF300, which got the "Bean" before its successors, there's still no word on when the Eee Pad Transformer, the step before the Prime, would get its OS update.
It's anyone's guess why ASUS is rolling out these updates in such a hopscotch manner, but hopefully they'll get going on a more predictable path soon.
