Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Wi-Fi updated to Android Jelly Bean
Samsung has started rolling out an official Android Jelly Bean update to its Wi-Fi-only Galaxy Note 10.1 (model number N8010).
It looks like the update – a 441 MB file – is available only in Germany for now, and it’s delivered over the air. As most Jelly Bean updates released these days for non-Nexus devices, this one brings Android 4.1, not 4.2 (but the latter should also come to the Note 10.1 someday).
Users in other markets will likely get the software upgrade soon, too.
Initially announced by Samsung back in February (at MWC 2012), the Galaxy Note 10.1 was redesigned, re-announced in August, and released to the market shortly after that, running Android Ice Cream Sandwich. Its features include: a 10.1 inch display with 1280 x 800 pixels, dual band Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, TV out, 5MP rear camera with flash, 1.9MP front-facing camera, 1.4GHz quad-core Exynos 4412 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB / 32GB / 64GB of internal memory, and MicroSD card support (up to 64GB).
The tablet measures 262 x 180 x 8.9 mm, weighs 597 grams, and has a 7,000 mAh Li-Ion battery. Like the 5 inch Galaxy Note, the Note 10.1 also features a dedicated S Pen – which, together with the apps designed for it, can be really useful.
An LTE version of the Galaxy Note 10.1 could be launched in the US in the near future (by Verizon Wireless).
