ASUS rolls out the Jelly Bean 4.2 for the MeMo Pad Smart 10

by: Bogdan PetrovanApril 22, 2013


Asus is continuing its brilliant record in bringing updates to its devices, with the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean update rolling out to users of the ASUS MeMo Pad Smart ME301T. The update will bring a host of new features like lock screen widgets, an improved keyboard experience, and a host of bug fixes.

The MeMo Pad is the cheapest 10-inch tablet Asus offers and comes with some very respectable specifications. With a 1280 x 800, 10.1 inch screen, a Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor clocked at 1.2Ghz, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of memory, all for a sweet deal of $299. If those specs sound familiar, it’s because this tablet is sort of a big brother of the Nexus 7, with a great price, the same solid specs, and a 10.1 inch screen.

The update is currently rolling out for U.S. MeMo Pads. Asus hasn’t given a time frame for a roll out to the rest of the world, but we wouldn’t expect too much of a wait. For those living in the U.S. who have yet to receive the update notification you can click here, for a link to the Asus download site.

Have you got the update yet? Do you think other Android OEMs need to get their act together? Let us know in the comments.

    Yet the Prime remains at 4.1 which has the Tegra 3 as well. Um just cause they built a tablet out of all aluminum that blocks its own wifi, and GPS sensors signal, and it totally does btw. Then charged us full price for it anyway and got caught up in a class action law suit doesn’t mean Asus should get butt hurt and stop supporting the tablet. However I do applaud Asus for upgrading the 300 before the infinity routinely, because its available first. If you got it might as well release it.
