The oft-promised update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean for the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is finally rolling out. It looks like the first country to get it is Germany, which is where the Wi-Fi-only Note 10.1 tablets have started to pop up update notifications to their owners.
The update is around 300 MB big, and after applying it you’ll be running software version XXBLJ9 (Android 4.1.1). Of course, the rollout is staggered, so not all German Note 10.1 Wi-Fi tablets may have it. As always, if you’re impatient you can manually check to see if it’s reached your particular device yet.
If you’re not in Germany, you’ll still need to be patient. However, you can also be reasonably happy now – it’s clearly only a matter of time until this update rolls out across the world.
The update brings with it more S-Pen functionality (on par with what’s seen in the Galaxy Note II), improved multitasking, a few new apps, and a faster overall system, as well as the Jelly Bean-specific bits and pieces. So obviously a worthwhile update, this one.
