Jelly Bean arrives for Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is the latest device from the manufacturer to get a taste of Android 4.1. News has spread from Germany where owners of the tablet are said to be receiving Jelly Bean as an over-the-air update, but there are no indications that the new software is available in other regions just yet.

After downloading and installing the 300MB update file the Note 10.1 reaches software version N8000XXBLJ9, which includes numerous enhancements as part of the Jelly Bean experience, including Google Now and Project Butter. The latter should make the user experience on the quad-core tablet smoother than ever.

The Galaxy Note 10.1, the S-Pen-toting big brother to the Galaxy Note smartphone, launched with Ice Cream Sandwich toward the end of the summer. All things considered it was a quick turnaround time for the slate’s Android 4.1 upgrade. Now that the update has commenced, it should likely reach other regions over the next few weeks. If you have already seen it outside of Germany, be sure to let us know.
