I'm not 100% familiar with the way OTAs work with Asus, but I'm fairly certain that JB will be available for unlocked devices pretty soon after the official release. The guys at XDA are going crazy waiting for JB, so I imagine that, once it gets released, there will be flashable versions with the day. Especially seeing how Asus releases their firmware to be downloaded off their support page.
And I just checked XDA. Apparently there's an OTA out since the 16th, but it's not Jelly Bean
