Samsung released the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for UK-based Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 tablet owners a short while back. And well, it looks like that same update has since come available for those in the US. More specifically, the Android 4.1.1 software update has arrived for those in the US and you can grab it over-the-air or by way of Kies.
The update is available for the Wi-Fi only variant of the tablet, the one sporting the model number of GT-P5113. The update measures in at a bit above 300MB and is build number JRO03C. That being said, we have yet to see a specific changelog for this update, however we know it contains Jelly Bean and as such — we know to expect goodies such as the smoothness of Project Butter.
Additionally, the update will bring the enhanced notifications as well as Google Now. Those who happen to be in the US with a Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 in hand now have a few options to consider — you can sit back and wait for the update notification to arrive or take the pro-active approach and get it now.
Those choosing to get it now can go with Kies or grab the tablet and navigate to Settings -> About device -> Software update to try and get the process started now. Bottom line here, you will likely want to grab this update as soon as possible as it is a decent improvement and will bring some new life into your tablet.
