Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1

If you are tired of seeing the same outdated software on your Verizon Samsung Galaxy Tab, there is an OTA update that is rolling out to most users that upgrades your tablet to, well, newer outdated software.

Android 4.1 is now hitting the Verizon Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 and 7, bringing all the performance improvements you would expect from Project Butter, as well as a healthy serving of Google Now.

While those are the 2 biggest improvements, there are going to be specific features that will only be available on your particular device: click here to check out the entire list of changes for the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 and here for the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0.

As always, if you are one of the people who have not had the update pushed to your tab yet, head into the Settings -> About device -> System updates to manually ping the servers. The update has already been approved and pushed to the non-carrier branded unlocked models, so hopefully there should not be any hidden problems or major bugs. Do let us know how the update is performing in the comments.

    Recently i updated my samsung galaxy tab 2 7 to jelly bean (4.1). from the day i have updated my RAM usage will always be 600 to 650 mb while my tab’s RAM is only 1gb, my tab hangs alot while using. But over all the smoothness, performance is increased. i can use my apps very smoothly. When i free my RAM in task manager it shows 21 applications have stopped, but i only have some 14 apps in total.

    Tab 2 7. P3113. UK. As at 270713 my unit is still running 4.1.1, and there is no sign of 4.1.2 nor 4.30. Have spoken with Samsung and they are unable to give any information.

    Is the report posted here a FACT for GLOBAL issuing of this JB update, or simply a “possibility”?
