Last week the folks from Samsung starting pushing out the update to Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean for their popular Galaxy Tab 2, only it was just for the 7-inch slate. Today however multiple reports are flooding in that the 10-inch Galaxy Tab 2 is also getting the same treat as we speak. Only their WiFi slate is getting the update, but read on for more details.

The Galaxy Tab 2 10-inch launched with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box, but now it's finally getting the near latest version of Android. Samsung's been busy updating all their popular smartphones, and it seems the tablets took a little backseat. Today however their two newest tablets now have been updated.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10-inch WiFi slate (GT-P5110) is getting Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean in the UK, but so far that's the only region that is seeing the update. Most likely this will continue to roll out over the next few days, and we'll see more countries enjoy the latest and greatest from Samsung.

As usual the update to Jelly Bean is available over the air, and users can also manually install the latest update using Samsung Kies software should you not want to wait. Along with an improved user interface and lockscreen this brings along all the treats from Google with Jelly Bean. That includes project butter for a fast and buttery smooth user interface, Google Now voice search, expandable notifications, and much more. We'll report back when the update starts arriving outside of the UK. For now give it a try and let us know how it goes in the comments below.

    The Note 10.1 is their newest tablet, not the Tab 2.

      The Note is actually not a true tablet. It is what they are calling a Phablet (Phone+Tablet) But is primarily a phone. So, ya… maybe don’t be so quick to jump on someone.

        @omegadk1 son, I’ve been at this for over a decade. The Note and Note 2 are hybrid devices, the note 10.1 is in fact Samsung newest non-Nexus tablet.

        10.1 denotes it is in fact the tablet. You are confusing the Galaxy Note (5 inch phone) with the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 (10.1 inch tablet). They are two entirely different products.
