Good for S3 owners you just beat the Nexus to 4.1.2 but bad for Nexus owners but soon the wait will be over and we'll have 4.2.2 : )

Big Red you may have the highest ratings per consumer reports, but real time customers are getting annoyed with your delayed updates.

Thats because the majority of the general public doesnt care and might not even know about updates.
If it isnt told to them or pushed by OTA...they would never hit the About Phone section. They probably dont as is.
Perfect examples is the Scroogled and phone unlock petitions. Millions of ppl probably viewed each petition...each only got 100,000+ signatures.

Lol I guess Verizon subscribers have to wait even longer. 4.1.2 but no premium suite? That sucks x/
