Jelly Bean time for the Samsung GALAXY Tab 2 7.0 in the Americas
Back in September, a road map let us know which of Samsung's devices would be receiving Android 4.1. One of the devices on the list, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, was the recipient of the update back in December. That update, which brought great additions like Project Butter and Google Now to the tablet, was rolled out globally. Now, Samsung is taking care of those in the Americas with the Samsung GALAXY Tab 2 7.0 tablet with the same update to the Android OS.

To check to see if you have received the update, you can hook your tablet up to your PC and go into Samsung Kies to see if the update is available there. Or, go to settings from the "About Tablet" page on your device. Based on the comments left by those who have updated their tablet, the update can be found on Kies (make sure your battery is fully charged!) and it removes both the screenshot icon and Swype. Don't fret about losing Swype as the swipe to type feature will eventually return on Android 4.2 with Google's own "Gesture Typing," which includes predictive input and a cool blue tracer.

If you've updated your Samsung GALAXY Tab 2 7.0 with Android 4.1.1, let us know what you think of the OS build by leaving us a comment in the box below.
