The original Asus Padfone isn’t nearly as impressive as the Padfone 2, but the company still thinks that they shouldn’t skip it over in terms of software update. Recently, Asus has rolled out the Android 4.1.1 (Jelly Bean) update for the first generation Padfone. Jelly Bean brings to users a number of significant enhancements including Google Now, which gathers relevant information for users.
The Project Butter allows the tablet to run very smoothly through proper software-based techniques. In addition, the notification tray is much more actionable allowing users to send or receive text message or email and make a call directly. Users can play videos and view photos from the notification area as well.
Obviously, Asus sees the update as an opportunity to throw some of their own stuff, such as camera preview function and improved dictionary app. There are also a fix to glitch related to the volume key and the Scrapbook app is significantly enhanced. The microSD card slot now supports EX FAT and NTFS formats.
