We knew it was happening, but now things are official. The Samsung Galaxy Note II is coming to Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and US Cellular. This is going to be a big deal, and not just because this phone is physically massive.

The centerpiece of the Note II is the 5.5-inch Super AMOLED HD panel at 1280x720. This screen uses Wacom inductive technology so you can make use of a pressure-sensitive S Pen, which docks neatly in the body of the phone when you're not using it.

We already know that the Big Four will be getting their own respective renditions of the Galaxy Note II. We also expect that it'll also be part of a unified release much like the Galaxy S III. We've even seen how Verizon defiled its home button. Turns out leaving its mark on the face of the device wasn't enough for Big Red, though; the carrier has also done some work to the bootloader.

Back in July, Google made available the stock Jelly Bean images for a couple of the Nexus S variants, as well as the GSM Galaxy Nexus, and Nexus 7. Today, the build for the global Nexus S (soja) got updated to Android 4.1.1 (JRO03L), and the Nexus S 4G (sojas) Jelly Bean 4.1.1 image (JRO03R) made its way to Google's image download site, as well.

Unfortunately, there's still no sign of Jelly Bean showing up for the Korean version of the Nexus S (or the LTE Galaxy Nexii, for that matter).

If you say nothing else about Samsung, the manufacturer is at least thorough about getting Ice Cream Sandwich out to as many devices as possible, if not punctual. Today's latest addition to the 4.0 stable is the Galaxy Exhilarate, a mid-range phone on AT&T. The update will be rolling out via Kies immediately.

The upgrade will not be sent out over the air, so break out those micro USB cables.

Yesterday, a great many tech sites were quick to jump on the bandwagon about rumors of a Galaxy S IV. It doesn't really matter what these rumors were - they were reported by The Korea Times, a publication that has regularly offered up Samsung leaks because of their geographical proximity to the company's supply chain. They also tend to get a little, shall we say, cheerleady about anything Samsung lately, so perhaps they jumped the gun on this one.

Samsung-Galaxy-S-III-UK-preorder

Samsung has just released the kernel source for one its devices running Jelly Bean for the first time; specifically, the Galaxy S III LTE that will be released in various markets across Europe (such as the UK's Everything Everywhere network) next month.

This version of the phone, though, is significantly different from the LTE-enabled variant we have here in the US. Instead of a dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, the GT-i9305 Galaxy S III is using an Exynos 4412 quad-core in tandem with an in-house Samsung LTE baseband chip.

While many people are patiently waiting for the Note II to hit the streets, the CM team has been working to bring the latest Android build to the original Note variants. CM10 has actually been available for the AT&T Note for a few days now, but the first nightly for the international variant just showed up.

Definition: A "nightly" is a bleeding edge release that is built on a daily basis, usually at night after a full day's worth of new code has been committed.

We already know that the Galaxy Note II will be making its way to Big Red eventually, and we assumed it would look identical to the international version. And it basically does, according to some leaked images that showed up today. Only, it has Verizon branding in places that no phone should ever have carrier branding of any kind: on the home button. I really hope this is a test design.

Owners of Verizon's Samsung Galaxy SIII should be keeping an eye out for a software update which VZW says is "coming soon." The update – which sadly is not Jelly Bean – brings to VZW-connected SIII owners a handful of key improvements, enhancements and bug fixes, and brings the device's software build up to IMM76D.I535VRALG7.

Among the changes included in the 30.7MB update are improved stability and connectivity with Back Up Assistant, the ability to use Verizon Remote Diagnostics, improved S Beam connectivity, an NFC (TecTile) bug fix, and a "No SIM" fix.
