Jelly Bean is being rolled out to the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1
The good news come from Germany, where some users have reported that the 300 MB OTA update has kindly asked them to be downloaded. So far, there's no info about other countries, but if Germany is getting it now, then more are sure to follow. There aren't too many details as to exactly what new stuff the update's bringing, but sweet goodies like Project Butter and Google Now are 100% featured.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is a 10.1" tablet with very good hardware and an S Pen stylus with pressure sensitivity. It's biggest downfall is its screen resolution, which is 1280 x 800 pixels, translating into a pixel density of 149 ppi. If that doesn't bother you too much, though, you'll probably find using the Note 10.1 quite satisfying.

U just had to say something negative about the device Ray S. Couldn't u just tell Note 10.1 fans that the update is coming and not bash the device, feels like you were looking for an opportunity just to say something negative about it. I'm not the fan of the device, but come on now, like really? I hope I won't be banned, but have you realized that PhoneArena users are really beginning to doubt you at our informative tech guy? U need to change man. Ur also beginning to leave a bad taste on my tongue lately.

Man Ray what are you....a Sammy Hater? or do you just simply hate android?
C'mon the screen res of Note 10.1 is the standard screen res in the market of 90% of tablets with the excpetional few like the old new ipad or new new ipad! And asus has one tab...there might be someone else may be
but what the heck the productivity you can achieve on Note 10.1 and the features alone beat everything out there...its not just hardware stuff like screen res that decides for an expert how good the device is...its the overall user experience! And with awesome hardwae and equally awesome software optimizations found in the Note series this tablet is a winner no matter how you look at it...PERIOD!

Is there any chance that the smaller GN 10.1 is getting JB when it comes out?
AND higher screen res 4 more pixel density?

buddy what is a smaller GN 10.1?
The Galaxy note 10.1 is just one tablet with a 10.1 inch screen :) Do you mean the Note 2? If so then it already has JB
And yes there's a samsung nexus 10 tablet coming out with a pixel density of 2560x1600!

yeah right, if you had nothing good to say, then don't say it at all. the news is all about the update, it's not about the screen resolution.

Ray, you are being a biased reviewers here. i clearly don't see the problem with that resolution, you have rights for personal preferences but this is a tech news site

Ray again dealing out apple biased opinions while wording it in such a way that it can be plausibly denied
