Jelly Bean seemed to stick around longer than other versions of Android. While most previous iterations were content to move along with each point release, Jelly Bean stuck around for 4.1, 4.2, and 4.3. It took quite a while for KitKat to arrive, and for some people, that wait has been longer than others.

If you purchased an AT&T Galaxy Note 8 back when it launched in 2013, you probably didn't think you would be stuck with Jelly Bean for this long. But it's true, Samsung has only just now gotten around to announcing its Android 4.4.2 update for the 8-inch tablet.


D'aw, remember that green battery icon?

The update will bump devices up to build number JZO54K.I467UCANI2. In addition to KitKat covered from head to toe with TouchWiz, you also get Beats Music pre-installed (you're welcome). Here's the change log.

What's new:

  • Android OS Version upgraded to 4.4.2 with all Security patches
  • Beat Music app pre-loaded
  • GMS apps update (GMS 4.4.2_r2)
  • Multi User Mode
