The new multi user support creates lags when a second user is added. The fix? Remove second user ... Gotta love googles betas!

4.2 is a keeper for me, mainly because of Google's swype-style keyboard. It's excellent.

And I would definitely like the new UI that is on nexus 10. The new multi-tasking is kinda nice. I guess swiping the apps up or down is better that swiping them sideways to close them.

The stock ASUS keyboard also has Swype-like feature, admittedly it is nowhere as good as Google's 4.2 keyboard. Nevertheless, I personally don't like swype on tablets, since it is a lot more tiring on tablets, I have to slide my fingers on a very big screen. To me swype makes a lot more sense on phones.

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....
I have no bluetooth issues wharsoever, o.O

Swype beta is available for free.
It has a mode that displays a smaller version that floats so that problem is non-existing.

4.2.2 is out today for the Nexus 7, Nexus 4 was yesterday I think. Mixed reviews so far. People are happy with the responsiveness and smoothness but there still seem to be some issues.
