AT&T announces Android 4.1 Jelly Bean for Galaxy S III

AT&T today announced that the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update is now available for the Samsung Galaxy S III. As is the case with other updates of its kind, the handset benefits from new goodies such as Google Now, enhanced notifications, camera features, and more.

Unfortunately, due to its size, the update is not done over the air and must be installed via Samsung’s Kies desktop software. If you need help installing the 4.1 update on your Samsung Galaxy S III, head to Samsung’s website.

    That figures. Once, again, Verizon is the last to update its product and it will be many months more before it does. They are also the only carrier who’s SGIII has a known and unresolved issue with its GPS. Google Navigation doesn’t work on many Verizon SGIII phones. So that makes Verizon a poor carrier when it comes to updating its devices and dealing with known issues. Looks like T-Mobile, Sprint and AT&T deserve kudos for being able to push out updates timely.
