Asus has finally brought Android 4.4 KitKat to two of its flagship devices, the Padfone Infinity and the Fonepad Note 6, bringing the two products up to date in terms of Android?s last major release.

The Padfone Infinity is Asus' quirky smartphone and tablet hybrid that sees the high end Android handset slot into a tablet dock to make it a working large screen slate. The Fonepad Note 6 on the other hand is a tablet that also has calling capabilities, both devices will get the bump to Android 4.4, but will have different change logs.

As with most OEM's, Asus has added to Google's already substantial changes from Jelly Bean to KitKat by updating plenty of its own software. Unfortunately, the update is not available over the air so you will have to do it the hard way and download it yourself. Asus has provided two pages to do this, you can check out the download for each device below.
