According to Asus the software update offers improved stability and bring support for multiple user logins on a single tablet. Google also introduced an improved keyboard, support for widgets on the lock screen, and other updates when the company first introduced Android 4.2 in October.

More than 4 months later, there are few Android 4.2 devices on the market, and the Asus Transformer Pad TF300 will be one of the few tablets that’s not part of Google’s Nexus program to offer the latest version of Android.

The tablet features a 10.1 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel display, an NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM and 16GB or more of storage. As part of the Asus Transformer Pad family, it also works with an optional keyboard dock (sold separately) which lets you use the tablet like a laptop. The dock also has its own battery, which means you get roughly twice the battery life when using the tablet and keyboard together.

Asus says it will also roll out Android 4.2 updates for additional tablets including the Transformer Pad Infinity, Asus MeMo Pad 7 inch tablet and Asus MeMo Pad Smart 10 tablet during the second quarter of 2012, which starts in April.

  1. I’ve used my Asus docking station in the last two year less than 10 times and it just went out. What a big disappointment. Stopped me from buying a laptop because the fact it went out for no reason. Is this a software thing? I factory reset to see will it work and it still do not. Only thing work on it is the mouse 🙁 I’m hoping that I do not have to trash the dock keyboard it was like two hundred bucks.

  2. ” and bring support for multiple user logins on a single tablet”
    This a 4.2 thing or an asus thing? anyways, nice feature!
