According to reports by Asus Transformer Pad TF300 owners, the Android 4.1 update is now available for download and installation on the TF300 tablet in North America.  A couple of hours ago, Asus officially confirmed the OTA Software update information through its Facebook account.  Folks, if you own the Asus Transformer Pad TF300, now is a good time to leave your computer and grab your tablet immediately.

More than just Android Jelly Bean, the update brings along new features such as global file search, power saving options, and the pre-installed apps are improved.

At this point, we are waiting to see when Asus will roll-out the momentous Android update to the other Transformer models such as the TF201 and TF700.  To this end, Asus reminds us announcements for the other devices will occur in the “near future.”

The full post on Facebook can be read below:

Dear Valued ASUS Customers,

We are pleased to announce that we will be rolling out a major software update for the ASUS Transformer Pad TF300, which will bring Android™ 4.1, Jelly Bean to the device for the first time in North America.
