AT&T Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 SGH-I497

After launching in late 2012 with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich in tow, AT&T's version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is now receiving an update to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. AT&T announced the good news on its official Consumer Blog, saying that the update will begin rolling out to users today, June 27. The update is available through Samsung's Kies computer software. Once installed, Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 owners can expect the following improvements:

  • Customizable widgets
  • Improved text input and spell-checking
  • New dictionaries for better error correction and word suggestion
  • Enhanced web browsing and personalization capability
  • Improved email management
  • New technology for better security options
  • Google Now with enhanced voice activation

Samsung does note that the update will reset the Tab 2 10.1's home screen setup as well as its application menu sorting, so that's something to keep in mind. Still, moving from Android 4.0 to Android 4.1.2 is a pretty big step that brings with it quite a few improvements and new features, and so having to reorganize the Tab 2 10.1's home screen and apps list shouldn't prevent any users from installing this new update. Full instructions on how to download and install the update can be found right here.
