ASUS has announced the Jelly Bean update for the Transformer Pad TF300T tablet. The update will be arriving as Android 4.2 and in a bit of good news, the update will begin arriving for those in the US as of today. The update will be delivered over-the-air and other markets can expect this update to arrive later in the month.

Coincidentally, this also marks the first non-Nexus branded device to get Android 4.2. Seems those sporting a TF300T have gotten lucky. ASUS hasn’t gone into much detail in terms of specifics for this update, however they have said that it will enhance performance and stability as well as “improve the user experience with new features.”

One of those new features will be the support for multiple users. Those looking for the update can sit back and wait for the notification to arrive on their device or probably more likely — can check for it now. Bottom line here, this update should give a nice boost and even extend the life for the Transformer Pad TF300T.

Aside from the TF300T, ASUS has also said that an update will be coming for the Transformer Pad Infinity, MeMO Pad Smart 10-inch and ASUS MeMO Pad. The update for these devices will be Android 4.2 and so far it looks like that will be coming sometime during the second quarter of 2013.

    Hmmm…no mention of the Prime? Not sure I understand supporting the lower-end 300 and not the Prime. Either way, my Infinity’s listed, so I’m good.

    If you go to settings, then > Launcher > you can change to the 4.2 jellybean launcher which includes the quick settings menu in the top right and notifications bar on the left. It also moves the applications button to the center. It’s a much better user experience in my opinion.
