Asus has rolled out the first Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update to its Transformer range of Android tablets, wih its Transformer Pad 300 first in line.
The update is currently only rolling out to Transformer Pad 300 owners in North America. It is unknown when the update will be available globally.
Google's Jelly Bean update was announced in late June alongside the company's home-grown Nexus 7 tablet.
The update is said by Google to deliver a faster and smoother user experience compared to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and prior releases.
Users can access new input options such as offline voice typing and gesture control, as well as a digital voice assistant, similar to the iPhone 4’s Siri.
Google also updated its Android Beam capabilities, allowing users to share videos and photos using built-in near-field communication capabilities. With the previous version, Ice Cream Sandwich, users could only use Android Beam to share web pages, maps or contact information.
Asus has previously confirmed that all its tablets will get an update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. It is yet to comment on when its Transformer Prime and Transformer Pad Infinity, as well as the older Eee Pad Transformer TF101 and Eee Pad Slider SL101 will be updated.
