Sprint’s Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 gets updated to Jelly bean


Sprint announced today that they’re pushing Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean over-the-air to the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 this morning. Along with the Android version bump, this update offers a bunch of bug fixes such as device self activation client update (whatever that means), WiFi Qualcomm driver fix giving the tablet the ability to connect to most recent WiFi connections and more. Here is a list of the changes:

  • Google Now gets you just the right information at just the right time, like how much traffic to expect before you leave for work or when the next train will arrive as you’re standing on the platform. Google Now can be accessed by launching the Google app from the app tray.
  • Smooth transitions enable effortless movement between home screens and apps, like turning pages of a book.
  • Expandable, actionable notifications allow you to take action directly from the notifications panel.
  • Widgets work like magic as you place widgets on the screen, everything else automatically moves to make room; when they’re too big, widgets resize on their own.

As usual, if you don’t get the prompt to update your Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, you can always check for it manually by going in your settings menu.
