Just a few days after Sprint updated its Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 to Android Jelly Bean, now Verizon is rolling out the update for its Tab 2 10.1, too. Even more, the largest North American mobile carrier is also upgrading the smaller Galaxy Tab 2.7.0.
Of course, we’re talking about Android 4.1 Jelly Bean here – but updates to version 4.2 should also arrive at some point.
More details about the Jelly Bean updates are available at Verizon here (Tab 2 10.1), and here (Tab 2 7.0).
The Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is currently offered by Verizon for $499.99. The Tab 2 7.0 is obviously cheaper, costing $299.99.
Earlier this month, Verizon launched the new Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet, which runs Android Jelly Bean out of the box, and costs $599.99. Like the Tab 2 10.1 and Tab 2 7.0, the Note 10.1 features LTE connectivity.
Non-carrier branded Galaxy Tab 2 units got their Jelly Bean updates in January in the US, and in late 2012 in Europe and other parts of the world.
