In a press release today, ASUS announced that their TF300 transformer tablet will receive the latest Android 4.2 update. The tablet is the first non-Nexus device to receive the Jelly Bean update, which adds multiple user account logins as well as enhanced performance and stability tweaks.
A custom ROM version of Android 4.2 has been available on ASUS devices for weeks, but the official update is just now being released. The download, which also includes various bundled apps, is being pushed out over-the-air for US users, while other regions will have to wait till March.
Although ASUS's close relation with Google did make the TF300 the first to receive the update, the rest of the company's lineup wasn't as lucky. Neither the TF700 nor the MeMo family of tablets will receive Android 4.2 at the moment, and those tablets will have to wait till Q2 of 2013 at the earliest.
