Galaxy Note 10.1 Android 4.1.2 updates heading out in US

Samsung has already sent out Jelly Bean updates to Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 and 7 owners, but today, it's the Galaxy Note 10.1's turn. Samsung has started sending out Galaxy Note 10.1 Jelly Bean updates in the US, and with this updates, Galaxy Note 10.1 users are getting a step up on their Galaxy Tab 2 counterparts. We're talking Android 4.1.2 specifically, which is something Galaxy Tab 2 owners are missing out on for the time being – their update was only to Android 4.1.1.

In any case, Samsung is making the update available over-the-air and through Kies. With the Kies software, you'll need to connect your tablet to your computer, but for Wi-Fi models, you'll also be able to snag the OTA update by going into Settings, selecting "About Device," and then selecting "Software Update." If the update is available, the download should begin automatically, leaving you to sit back and wait with anxious anticipation for Jelly Bean to arrive.

Samsung has been doing a pretty good job of pushing Jelly Bean updates out to its major devices. The Verizon Galaxy S III received the latest version of Google's Android OS back in December, and even the relatively new Galaxy Camera received the Jelly Bean treatment. Now it's time for Samsung's tablets to get some Jelly Bean love, which we're sure is something that will make many users happy.

Keep in mind that the update may not pop up right away, so if you're not seeing it right now, sit tight. It could be that Samsung is sending out OTA updates in waves, so some users might get it before others. If you're stuck waiting for the OTA update to appear, you could always connect your Note 10.1 to Kies and see if that proves to be a faster process. Are any of you Galaxy Note 10.1 owners rocking Jelly Bean this afternoon?
