Verizon's Samsung Galaxy S III finally getting Android 4.1.2 update
posted by Alan F. / Mar 05, 2013, 2:02 PM
Other changes include an improvement to the predictive text on the virtual QWERTY keyboard, and Big Red's Samsung Galaxy S III users can now take pictures while shooting a video. For those who just need to know the price of a stock at that moment, a manual refresh button has been added to the lock screen stock market ticker. Email syncing and Bluetooth performance have both been improved and VZ Navigator and Amazon have been added to stub applications.
The new version of the build is VRBMB1 and if you are a Verizon customer with the Android flagship model, let us know if you received the update by dropping a comment in the box below.

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.
