Samsung is beginning to roll out a Jelly Bean update to Note 10.1 tablets. The updates are beginning in Germany starting today. A report from SamMobile says that the over-the-air update is rolling out gradually to German owners of the device, so if you are in Germany, you may not see the update just yet. Be patient.
The update comes in at around 300MB, so if you own are in Germany, expect the download to take a little bit. Once the upgrade is complete, devices should be running software version N8000XXBLJ9. It's only been a few short months since the device hit the market toting Ice Cream Sandwich, and it's good to see Samsung turning around an update quickly, even if it's just in Germany for now.
The update will add some awesome features for owners of the Galaxy Note 10.1. Probably the most notable of these is Project Butter, which greatly improves responsiveness of the device. The update also adds the new Google Search App and access to Google Now, which helps personalize the device and make it your own.
As of this writing, there is no word on whether other territories are receiving the update. Hopefully Samsung rolls out the update to the rest of the world sooner rather than later.
