Asus Padfone 2 to get JB next month, keyboard dock later

18 October, 2012

The Asus event, which brought us the new Padfone 2 smartphone/tablet was over all too quickly and some details almost slipped through. Among them were the Jelly Bean update schedule and the keyboard dock, which wasn’t presented.

According to an Asus representative, the company plans to have the Android 4.1 update ready by November. This means that even if you are among the very first to buy it, you will only have to wait a couple of weeks to get it.

As for the keyboard dock, that's still in development too. Asus says it's trying to create the best keyboard dock possible, but didn’t commit to a time frame. Of course, there's a possibility that Asus might ax the dock, but chances of that happening are slim.

Anyway, you can check out our hands-on impressions of the Asus Padfone 2 from Tuesday's event, complete with a close look at the hardware, some benchmarks of the Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset and even a sample from the 13MP camera.
