If you’re in the US, own a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, and bought it from Sprint – then this is for you. Exactly two months after the update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean for this tablet started rolling out in the US for Wi-Fi-only units (not purchased from carriers), Sprint has joined in the fun.
The Now Network has started rolling out the update to Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean for the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 today. The rollout will take a few weeks, and it’s an over-the-air affair. So your tablet will notify you when the update is ready to download and install, and you go from there.
The update comes with everything that makes Jelly Bean special, namely Google Now, the overall smoothness added by Project Butter, expandable notifications, resizable widgets and widgets that get out of the way, and many other smaller things.
So now that you know that the update is on route to you, all you can do is wait for it to arrive. Or, if you’re impatient, force your tablet to manually check for it by going to Settings and finding the About section, then hitting Check Now or Check for updates or whatever Samsung’s exact wording may be.
