The long-awaited Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 Jelly Bean update has finally found its way to the United States, after starting to roll out last year, and it looks like the update has been accompanied by the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 Jelly Bean update in the U.S. as well.
While the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 Jelly Bean update started roll out at the beginning of December, owners in the United States still were without the update. That is, until a few short days ago when the update became available through the device Settings and through Samsung Kies. That means that owners can either head into the About section of the Settings and Check for an update, or, install Samsung Kies and get the software upgrade through a PC.
Fortunately, it looks like owners of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 are also the beneficiaries of Samsung’s kindness as the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 Jelly Bean update has started to hit owners in the U.S. as well. Those who own one of these smaller Galaxy Tab devices will want to head into the Tab’s device Settings to Check for an update. Samsung Kies should also work as well.
Users of both devices should set aside some time to download and install the software. Once the installation process is done, Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean will be the on-board operating system on both the Galaxy Tab 10.1 2 and the Galaxy Tab 7.0 2. It’s a huge upgrade over Android 4.0 ICS and brings a host of useful features and improvements to both of the tablets.
Many of them can be seen in the video below.
Both updates have been a long-time coming for owners of both Wi-Fi versions of these devices as we have known for several months now that they would be getting the software at some point down the road. Owners of the cellular models are likely going to have to wait for awhile while carriers get their act together. U.S. carriers are typically slow moving to these updates so it could be awhile before owners see Jelly Bean.
