    [OFFICIAL] SL101 JellyBean Thread

    With the announcement of Android 4.1, Google has spilled the beans (literally)
    on their new OS codename Jelly Bean. It is available on the Nexus7 natively, and has already been ported over to the Galaxy Nexus (and many more to come).

    It has lots of great new features, and it is faster than ICS and rivaling iOS for its buttery smoothness.

    As of now, no official announcements from Asus have been made as to whether or not the cool new OS will be officially ported to the SL101, but rumors indicate that Asus is planning on supporting updates up to 18 months after discontinuing their devices, so it should be getting it sometime. Stay tuned for more details. We will keep the first post updated with the latest information that we can find.

    Feel free to discuss the rumors you can find about JellyBean and the SL101 in this thread.

    UPDATE 1: Looks like an unofficially official list of who is getting JellyBean is here: The SL101 is not on the list, but then again the Slider is not that popular of a tablet, so don't count this fighter out yet!
    Thanks for the link Muzz!

    UPDATE 2: Asus Germany has denied the rumors that the TF101 (and SL101) are NOT getting JellyBean

According to ASUS Germany, this does not correspond to the truth, as indeed should be ASUS Netherlands have not commented on the upgrade plans for the old Transformer model.

    We are pleased to announce that many of our tablet products are scheduled to receive an update to Android 4.1, Jelly Bean. The ASUS Transformer Pad, ASUS Transformer Pad Prime and ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity are all scheduled to receive Android 4.1 updates in the coming months. We will provide further guidance on our expected timeframes for these updates near their release.

    We are still investigating Jelly Bean updates for other devices, but we are not in a position to confirm whether any other products will be eligible for an update at the moment.

    Thank you for your continued support.

    As we suspected, this confirms that the Infiity, TF300 and TF201 should be getting JellyBean in the near future. No official word on when the TF101 and SL101 will be munching on jelly beans though.

    That's okay, there will be another one along in a while and that will save opening another thread.
