If you’re planning on being one of the first few that will be picking up the ASUS PadFone 2 (official specs and images available here), you might want to note that the device will be launched with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Given that Android 4.1 Jelly Bean has been out for a while now, some of you guys might be disappointed that ASUS has decided to go with an older version of Android. Well the good news is that according to an ASUS representative, the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update is scheduled for a release by November, which means early adopters of the device will only need to wait a couple of weeks before they get the update. As far as the keyboard dock is concerned, the rep stated that the dock is still in development although no timeframe was given for its release. We’ll keep our eyes peeled nonetheless but for buyers on the fence, hopefully the release of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean by November will make the ASUS PadFone 2 a more tempting purchase.
