If there's one thing you can say about Samsung, it's that the company is at least trying to push out updates, with a sizeable number of devices already running Jelly Bean. Sure, it's 4.1 and about six months behind the Nexus baseline, but the company is better than most manufacturers about rolling out updates lately. As if to demonstrate this, the Wi-Fi Galaxy Note 10.1 (N8010) has started to receive Jelly Bean 4.1.1 (JRO03C) in Germany.


XDA users in Germany are reporting that the update is rolling out to their devices right now. No word yet on when or if this will roll out to any other countries, but we imagine that slates unbound by carrier restrictions will see it sooner rather than later. So, how about our readers? Any Note 10.1 owners out there seeing download prompts?

    No need to rereview this one. when my bro got ics on his S2, nothing but minor stuff changed, whole feeling is the same. though interested in tech, he doesnt even care about jelly bean and I can understand clearly why. everything will be under the hood, nothing one could notice.

      no no no lol the bean is sweet! i got my S3 with ICS and when i upgraded to JB i instantly noticed the smoothness. The Note 10.1 will also get the premium suite which adds extra functions for free, youtube jellybean note 10.1 and you will clearly see the difference

      Im in UK, no update as yet but cant wait :D
      Thanks AP for keeping us in the know
