If you’re in the US and own a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 or a Galaxy Tab 2 7.0, you should be really excited, because the update to Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean is now available for both of these devices. We are of course referring to Wi-Fi-only units and not those with bundled data connectivity sold by carriers – those will get their updates on a different schedule.
A couple of months after such an update started rolling out in parts of Europe, the first iteration (and hopefully not the last) of Jelly Bean for Samsung’s two tablets is now waiting to be installed by you, either via Kies or via OTA. Kies is Samsung’s desktop PC software, which can help you update your tablet.
Alternatively, you can wait for an update notification to be shown by your device, after which you can download and install the 311 MB update right on the tablet, with no need for a computer. In case you want to do things over-the-air but haven’t been notified about the update yet, you can naturally manually check by going to Settings > About device > Software update.
No official changelog has been spotted (at least not yet), but expect to see all the goodies introduced with the 4.1 version of Jelly Bean (Project Butter, Google Now, improved notifications, enhanced performance overall, etc.) plus Samsung’s love-it-or-hate-it TouchWiz UI layer sitting pretty atop.
