Default 4.2

So I'm loving my tf700, but supprised is still 4.1. Has there been any sign of 4.2 coming?

Google replaced the Bluetooth stack in 4.2 and effectively destroyed Bluetooth on many devices. Google is now trying to correct the problem and have announced that 4.2.2 will be out shortly, whatever that means, and have a fix.

So I would think that no devices will be getting 4.2 for some time until Google works out its self-caused Bluetooth disaster.

I own a nexus 7 in addition to a TF700. It is running 4.2.1. The new Bluetooth stack brings back lag on streaming audio - particularly Neflix

There are partial fixes like occasionally clearing the cache on the Bluetooth service/software, and frequently restarting Bluetooth - but its a pain and it doesn't work well.

So be careful what you wish for....

Right, and I am also not convinced that the new two-bar system UI is usable on a 10" device.

I also don't like the idea of the wasted screen space. On my Nexus 7 it's such a shame.

No thank you, I'd rather keep 4.1 with the streamlining updates Asus keeps sending us. For the moment 4.2 seems like a step backwards.

Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

The simplest solutions are often the cleverest. They are also usually wrong.

I would actually say that 4.2 is a step backwards.

4.2.2 is out for nexus devices. That means the bugs(Bluetooth and WiFi) in the the original OS got a fix so we could expect the update for asus transformer infinity in a month or so. Waiting desperately for it.

Why are you waiting desperately? What does it bring that you can't have now?
