Asus Transformer Pad 300 Android 4.2 Jelly Bean update now rolling out
If you’ve been wondering what the first non-Nexus device to get updated to Android 4.2 would be, it’s time to stop. We now know. It’s the Asus Transformer Pad 300 tablet (TF300T). This is not much of a surprise, since Asus has always been extremely quick to issue Android OS updates (compared to other mobile device makers). And yes, you’d probably expect the company to start the updating to the latest OS version with its high-end tablets, not the lower-end 300 series, but this time around those who went for the more affordable option profit first.
Obviously, updates for the other tablets in Asus’ portfolio will follow. Sometime during the second quarter of the year (April-June), the Transformer Pad Infinity, and both the 7-inch and the 10-inch MeMO Pad will get updated to this version of Google’s mobile operating system.
The update to Android 4.2 has started rolling out in the US today, and it will make its way to other territories this month. As is usually the case with over-the-air rollouts, this may or may not take a while to reach each particular tablet out there. So be patient. The important thing to remember now is that it’s definitely on the way.
