BriefMobile has received a screenshot this morning that would seem to confirm the existence of a Verizon-flavored Galaxy Note II, rounding out the phone's appearances on each of the US's "big four" carriers.

Last week, we saw the device leaked for T-Mobile, Sprint, and AT&T. We had figured, at that point, that Verizon wouldn't be getting the device. Particularly because it's selling the LG Intuition, which is the Note II's one and only phablet (shudder) competitor here in the US.

The crew over at SamMobile have gotten their hands on some nice treats for Tab 2 7.0 and Note 10.1 owners: builds of Android 4.1.1 for both devices. Of course, these aren't finalized builds, but rather a first look at what Jelly Bean will be like on the aforementioned tablets.

Both versions are OTAs flashable via Odin on top of specific stock builds.

Tab 2 7.0

  • Build P3100DDBLI1
  • Android 4.1.1 JRO03C
  • 295.2MB

Before flashing this, you must be on stock build P3100DDBLH3.

Judging from a new leak released to BriefMobile by a "trusted source," it looks like the Galaxy Note II lineup is pretty much complete for US launch.

The source today provided BriefMobile with screenshots taken from an SGH-I317 unit (codenamed toIteatt) running on AT&T's 4G LTE network, and packing all the specs you'd expect from the original phablet's successor – Android 4.1.1. Jelly Bean, a 720x1280 resolution, and a quad-core 4412 Exynos processor.

In all the Jelly Bean excitement, it can be easy to forget that only 20% of Android users are running Ice Cream Sandwich. Today that number gets just ever so slightly larger, though. AT&T has announced that the Samsung Captivate Glide will be upgraded to 4.0 starting today, September 7th. Woo!

The update will only be available via Kies, so head to your favorite desktop computer post haste. It will not be rolling out over the air.

Just earlier today, we found Sprint documents that confirmed the Galaxy Nexus variant on the Now Network would be receiving Jelly Bean today. Now, a Sprint employee has confirmed on its community message board that the Nexus S rollout will begin today. As with the GNex update, this will be an OTA, so no, refreshing over and over won't get it to you any faster.

Of course, it's still a reminder that CDMA Nexii get the short end of the stick.

As was reported yesterday, it looks like the Sprint Galaxy Nexus will, in fact, be receiving its upgrade to Jelly Bean. Finally. According to documents on Sprint's support page, the JRO03R build starts rolling out today. It looks like it will be an OTA update. If you want to compulsively check for it, though, you can do so in Settings.

We're still waiting to see if the Nexus S 4G will also get the promised Jelly Bean update, as we'd also heard.

When the first Galaxy Note launched, everyone was reasonably skeptical. Was the world ready for such a large phone? Turns out, yep. So now, it would be expected for more carriers to want in on the action. Cue Sprint, stage left. One curious XDA member started poking around in some Sprint documents and found reference to one "SPH-L900." We know SPH is a designation Sprint uses for its Samsung phones (Galaxy Nexus is SPH-L700, Galaxy S III is SPH-L710, etc.), but the L900 is brand new.

Pay-as-you-go service is getting more and more appealing with each passing day, and Virgin Mobile just announced the Samsung Galaxy Reverb - an Android 4.0 handset that should offer a decent amount of bang for the buck.

Specs:

  • 4" display
  • 1.4GHz single-core processor
  • 768MB RAM
  • 5MP rear shooter
  • 122.40mm x 64.20mm x 11.40mm, 128.7g
  • Android 4.0

While those specs are mediocre compared to the flagship phones of today, it's hard to deny the allure of a device that goes for $249 without contract on a carrier that offers equally as affordable plans.

Today, a software update began rolling out for the Galaxy Note in Germany. The primary changes are cosmetic, it seems, to bring the phone more in line with the look and feel of the Galaxy Note II. The menu interface has been updated to be more consistent, and Samsung has also added a brand new Gallery that looks fantastic.

CDMA-based Nexuses (Nexii?) tend to get the short end of the stick when it comes to timely updates. The promise of the Nexus is that you'll always have the latest Android experience just the way Google imagines it. While the international version of the Galaxy Nexus has had Jelly Bean for a while, Sprint's been left in the cold. Until, tomorrow, September 6th, if Android Central's source is correct.

Here's the email that a tipster sent in:

To Sprint Business Sales

September 5, 2012

Software updates for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus (L700) and Nexus S 4G will be available beginning Thursday, 9.6.12.
