Sprint starts rolling out Jelly Bean update to Galaxy Tab 2 10.1

Who’d say no to a Jelly Bean treat – even if it’s offered a bit late? If you own the Sprint variant of the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, you'll be happy to hear that your LTE tab will receive Jelly Bean starting today.
March 11, 2013

Who’d say no to a Jelly Bean treat – even if it’s offered a bit late? The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 WiFi received its update back in January, and if you own the 4G LTE variant of the tab on Sprint, we’ve received confirmation from the carrier that it is now rolling out Jelly Bean to its Tab 2 10.1 customers

It might take up to a few weeks for the Over-the-Air update to hit your tablet, though once you’ve received the update notification, the installation itself will only take a few minutes. Alongside Jelly Bean features like Google Now and expanded notification, your Tab 2 10.1 will get a slight UI makeover.

Take note that once you’ve made the jump to Android 4.1, you are likely to lose the tab’s screenshot shortcut, a feature that’s apparently quite popular amongst owners of the WiFi variant. In case you didn’t know, you can take a screenshot by pressing and holding the power button and volume down on the tab at the same time.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 from Sprint Gets Jelly Bean Update

Today, Sprint began rolling out the Android™ 4.1.1, Jelly Bean, update to its Samsung Galaxy Tab® 2 10.1 customers.

The update is available over the air (wirelessly). The update notification will be pushed automatically to Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 users during the next few weeks. Once the download is complete, you will be prompted to install the update. Installation will take a few minutes, and your device will be disabled during the installation process. It will be ready to use when the process is complete.

Jelly Bean offers users stunning graphical capabilities with expanded feature functionality, including:
• Google Now™ gets you just the right information at just the right time, like how much traffic to expect before you leave for work or when the next train will arrive as you’re standing on the platform. Google Now can be accessed by launching the Google™ app from the app tray.
• Smooth transitions enable effortless movement between home screens and apps, like turning pages of a book.
• Expandable, actionable notifications allow you to take action directly from the notifications panel.
• Widgets work like magic as you place widgets on the screen, everything else automatically moves to make room; when they’re too big, widgets resize on their own.
