Galaxy S III smartphone is a smashing success. The company has already stated over 10 million have been sold, and that is only the beginning. Today we are getting reports that Samsung is already in the final testing stages of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean for both the Galaxy S III, and the older Galaxy S II.
Galaxy Nexus (LTE) will be dropped down to just $99 with a new 2-year contract. This marks the lowest Verizon has sold the Google experience device for, and is a pretty solid deal. We've seen low prices like this before but not directly from the folks at Verizon.
Samsung's latest in the Galaxy S line has unsurprisingly proven to be quite popular with smartphone owners out there, with the company claiming that total sales of the Galaxy S III to date have climbed past 10 million. The phone is hitting that sales milestone ahead of expectations, thanks in no small part the massive marketing campaign Samsung has rolled out to hype the new handset. What makes this even more impressive is that the Galaxy S III has only been available in Europe and Asia since the end of May, with North American carriers first getting the phone only last month.
Android 4.1 Jelly Bean updates to Nexus S phones on select carriers Friday night, but unfortunately earlier in the week the company announced that it was having some trouble keeping 16GB Nexus 7 tablets in stock. As a result, the 16GB Nexus 7s now have an estimated delivery time of 3-4 weeks when shipping from the Google Play Store, so unless you're okay with picking up an 8GB model instead, you might be left waiting for a Nexus 7.
Huawei's MediaPad 10 FHD tablet might just take the cake. Not only is the MediaPad 10 itself something to get excited about, but there's just something about its new promotional video that leaves us feeling at peace. Perhaps it's the soothing background music or the serene images of flower petals floating in the wind. Then again, it may be that 10.1-inch 1920 x 1200 IPS LCD display. Whatever it is, it's totally working.
Android 4.1 Jelly Bean would actually come to the Nexus S, it seems that Google has begun the roll out. Unfortunately, for the moment it seems that only some carriers are getting the update, so some Nexus S owners may be left waiting for a while. In any case, Google announced via the Nexus Twitter account today that the update roll out has started, so at least we know that it's underway.
