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.

User complaints on xda, news releases, Google. Pretty well known bug. Not sure if it was fixed in the 4.2.1 update.

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.

I don't think asus would update us with 4.2.2 but i guess they would update us with 4.2.1 and may be they would never give us 4.2.2. We never had 4.0.4 when we were on ice cream sandwich, we only had 4.0.3. And on 4.1, i don't think they'll ever give a 4.1.2 update but they would update it directly to 4.2 and again some line of updates but i don't think they would ever update 4.1.1 to 4.1.2 or 4.2.1 to 4.2.2.
