GSIII Jelly Bean “in the coming months” says Samsung: Specifics left to carriers

Samsung has committed to pushing out Jelly Bean to all US variants of the Galaxy S III, though has stopped short of saying when - beyond "in the coming months" - Android 4.1 will arrive exactly. Instead of a firm date, the Jelly Bean update is in the hands of Samsung's carrier partners, the company concedes, which will also be able to decide whether to deliver it OTA or via Kies (or, indeed, both).

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: October 11, 2012

Welcome to Thursday evening, folks - just one more work day and the glorious weekend is here once again. This afternoon we heard that both the iPad Mini and the 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro - neither of which officially exist yet, remember - have been delayed due to problems with component yields, but not long after, analysts were saying that the MacBook Pro with Retina Display is still on track to launch this year.

Developers: an Android 2011 Retrospective

Developers: an Android 2011 Retrospective

When we look back at this year, we'll think of it as the year of the birth of the dual-core mobile super chip, the double CPU processor becoming the status quo for a smartphone or tablet running Android, this the single most important thing to those who use the devices as tiny computers while the term "4G" dominates the memories of the masses, but it's developers that mattered most. There's no thinking about Android this year without recognizing that it's still running alongside Apple's iOS, the iPhone, and the iPad 2 as its primary competitors, and as its own user interface changes drastically, its competitors instead tweak functionality inside their already set-in-stone aesthetic. Then there's the battles between manufacturers, carriers, and Android versions too, but none of this existed outside the underground of hackers, developers, and tweakers galore!

Before we continue, know this: it's almost as if these two devices aren't from the same family, that's how different they are. Though the Galaxy Player 5.0 is only being released now near the holiday season, the Galaxy S II (in all its forms here in the United States) takes no prisoners when it comes to power and abilities.
