Asus pledges Android 4.2 update for Google Nexus 7

Coming soon says slate's supplier

Security for virtualized datacentres

Asus has confirmed that the Google Nexus 7 tablet will be getting Android 4.2 “in the very near future”.

It’s no great surprise, the 7 being a Google-branded gadget an’ all, but the new will reassure Nexus 7 owners who noted that while the new Nexus 4 smartphone from LG and the Samsung-made Nexus 10 tablet, both announced a week ago, come with 4.2, the revised 7s, also unveiled last week, are listed as 4.1 devices.

Android 4.2, described by Google as “a new flavour of Jelly Bean”, will allow the Nexus 7 to play host to multiple user accounts, adds swipe-to-type keyboard entry, soups up the notification system with settings options, and introduces Miracast video-out-over-Wi-Fi technology to the tablet.

Alas, Asus isn’t saying - Google neither - when Android 4.2 will be pushed out to Nexus 7 tablets. Later this month after the version of the 7 with on-board 3G cellular connectivity ships would be our guess. ®
