Since the JB update started rolling out to the GSIII in Europe last night, Samsung decided this would be the perfect time to let U.S. owners know that the update will be available "in the coming months." Can you guess the reason why it's going to take so much longer? Allow me to enlighten you:
The specific timing and update method will be announced by each carrier partner, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless and U.S. Cellular.
Yep, it's the carriers. Still, while the timing may not be ideal, at least the update is guaranteed.
Samsung goes on to brag about the "host of new and enhanced TouchWiz features," including camera enhancements, blocking mode (which can disable calls, notifications, and alarms), easy mode (which simplifies the interface), and of course, overall usability improvements.
