ASUS confirms it's working on Android 4.2 update
ASUS has always been one of the quickest manufacturers when it comes to pushing out Android OS updates to its devices, and the company has confirmed that it is already working on the Android 4.2 update for its tablets. The news comes from a couple of Dutch websites, but neither gives any specific information.

ASUS has always been quick on updates because it doesn't add much to the stock Android experience. Not surprisingly, the Transformer Prime TF201 is expected to get the update first, and ASUS seems to have said the tablet will get the update "soon".

That was the only specific tablet mentioned, but ASUS has confirmed that it is working on the update for all of its tablets.

The prime was the first to tablet to get ICS, and they were the first company to update their current lineup to Jellybean.
