AT&T's Samsung Galaxy Express gets its Android 4.1 update
Launched last November on AT&T, users of the Samsung Galaxy Express have been watching as their friends and family have had their phones updated to Android 4.1. Not that there is anything wrong with Ice Cream Sandwich, but Galaxy Express owners have been dying to experience the smooth lag-free responsiveness of Project Butter. Also included in the update is Google Now, which in many ways is Google's answer to Siri, but also has some capabilities that Siri doesn't have. This includes the ability for the application to push out information the user needs, when he needs it. Also added to the phone with the update are actionable notifications. You can make calls, read emails, view pictures and look at video, all from the notifications page.

The Jelly Bean update also brings with it Blocking Mode, allowing you to disable incoming calls, notifications, alarms and LED notifications. A ticker on the bottom of the lock screen scrolls by with the latest information from your social networking sites. And for those who constantly go over their monthly data cap, the Android 4.1 update adds a calculator that lets you limit your data usage each month. And for first time smartphone buyers, Easy Mode makes setting up and using the Samsung Galaxy Express a snap with large home screen widgets available for the most widely used functions such as contacts, clocks and alarm, favorite contacts and favorite apps.

When the update is ready to be installed, users will receive a notification that it is ready to be installed. You can try to coax it out manually by going to Applications > Settings > About Device > Software Update > Check for Updates.
