Asus Transformer Pad first non-Nexus device to get Android 4.2 Asus has announced that its Transformer Pad TF300 is getting the Android 4.2 update this week.
The device will be the first non-Nexus tablet to receive the software.

U.S. users will be the first to get the update, with other regions getting the OTA update later this month.

It is unclear which build Pad owners will get, but it is very unlikely that it will be the brand new 4.2.2.

Asus cited its "very close" relationship with Google as the reason for being first with the operating system. Despite this boast, other new Asus devices, like the Transformer Pad Infinity, MeMO Pad Smart, and MeMO Pad will get the update in May.
