Well, T-Mobile just got its first LTE device. It's not the already announced SIII, either – it's the Galaxy Note II. That's right, the first LTE-compatible phone comes to T-Mobile by way of OTA update. Owners of Samsung's massive smartphone should be able to pull the 9MB right now, which also brings "various device improvements" along for the ride. Basically, it makes the already-powerful device faster and less buggy.

For those who are rooted and want in on the LTE action, you can grab both odexed and deodexed versions of the ROM, as well as the new modem and kernel files for your flashing pleasure over at XDA.

If you decided Motorola's successor to the Electrify was the perfect choice of phone for you, the time has come to head into the Settings > About Phone > System Updates menu, because Moto has started pushing the Android 4.1.2 update to the device. Please, try to contain your excitement while you read through the [kind of] changelog:

  • Expanded Notifications – So much to do and keep track of, so little time in the day.

Even though Verizon is not known for having a speedy update approval process, owners of the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 and Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 are finally about to win the Jelly Bean lottery. The OTAs will bring each device up to Android 4.1.2.

While Big Red may have just started pushing Jelly Bean to the OG RAZR/MAXX twins, the more modern HD variants of the devices are set to get a decent bug-fix-update as well. The details of the OTA just hit Verizon's support site, which generally means the update is ready to go and should begin rolling out within a few days.

Looks like it's going to bring fixes-a-plenty, covering everything from security to data roaming and Wi-Fi connectivity.

It's been a long time coming, but Sprint's version of the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is finally getting updated to Jelly Bean (Android 4.2.1). There are quite a few reasons to pull this update, as it brings several enhancements over Ice Cream Sandwich, including Google Now, Project Butter (for smoothness), enhanced notifications, lockscreen widgets, and much more.

Aside from that, the update also brings a "Wi-Fi Qualcomm driver fix" so the device will automatically connect to the most recent Wi-Fi hotspot, as well as a "device self activation client update." Sounds intense.

Verizon's LG Intuition has long been an awkward kid at the lunch table. With a 5" display at 4:3 resolution, it's had a difficult time being accepted, much less competing. Even so, it has not been completely forgotten – Verizon is preparing to roll out a maintenance update to the device that will remove the Color and V Cast apps, fix some assorted bugs, and should improve speakerphone quality. There is one curious detail to this update, it also adds the Amazon Appstore.

In the pantheon of devices bearing the name Nexus, there is one obvious black sheep. The Verizon Galaxy Nexus never really got the update love that GSM Nexus devices have, and there was that whole Google Wallet debacle. While the updates haven't been flowing quite like owners had hoped, a version of Android 4.2.2 is now rolling out to Verizon testers. It may only be a matter of time before the update is official.

Samsung seems to have gotten the hang of updating phones besides the major flagships. While it's still coming about nine months after the release of Jelly Bean and nearly six months after the release of the handset, the Galaxy Stellar will be upgraded to 4.1 "soon", according to these Verizon support docs. The OTA will bring the much-beloved Google Now as well as expandable notifications and all the other goodies of the newest tasty treat.

Earlier this month, The Now Network pushed an update to its version of the Samsung Galaxy S III with a few small fixes in it. That update was build L710VPMA6. Today, the company is sending another update to the Galaxy S III that is essentially the same update, plus one addition: 3rd party software licensing. This one's build L710VPMB1, will hit your device regardless of whether or nor you installed the previous update.

Well, here's a bit of a nice surprise: one lucky XDA user just got an update to 4.1.2 on his Sprint Optimus G. And then another. And another. And some more. All with nary a word from The Now Network, which is usually pretty on top of announcing updates for devices. Ergo, at this point, we're not entirely sure if this is the start of a full-on rollout or just a "soak test" of sorts.
