If you happen to be living in the UK or any of the Nordic countries and are a Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet user — an update will soon be available. It seems Samsung has begun the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for users with the Galaxy Note 10.1 N8000 (3G /Wi-Fi) model.

Anyway, if you happen to live in any of those countries — you have a few options to consider. The first being to take the casual approach where you sit back and wait for the update notification to arrive on your device. We suspect few will be willing to sit back and do nothing. That being the case, the next best option would be to head to the settings and frantically hit the check for update button.

Or lastly, take the get it now method by manually downloading and installing the update. You can download the updated firmware by clicking here or here. The build number for the UK and Nordic is N8000OXXBLJ2 and the update will arrive as Android 4.1.1. And while the updates are listed for the UK and Nordic Countries, opening either and we find the full list of supported regions to include; Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Spain, United Kingdom.

All that said, the safest and easiest route would be to sit back and wait for your OTA update to arrive. Finally, we have yet to see a specific changelog for either of the updates, however they are expected to bring goodies such as Google Now with Voice search as well as the enhancements from the Premium Suite which Samsung detailed last week.
