    I don't think the JB will be released until the origianal note is OFF the market at the stores. Why would one buy a Note 2 if the Note has JB too? The Note 2 wouldn't be worth $150 more would it? So, with that in mind, I don't expect the JB until the original note goes off the market.

    I got this news in my inbox last night:

    So in the USA, I bet it is still months away.

    At the above link, look at where it says Platform and you will see it says JellyBean.4.1.

    I suggest this means the JB update is imminent, seeing as how Samsung themselves have added JB to the specification of the Note.

    See my post above yours. I will believe it when I see it. I'm not counting on it anytime soon.

    Here's a site that says Samsung admitted that it will probably be February. Anyway it happens when it happens.

    Samsung need to be careful. They are riding high at present selling more handsets (c.60 million last year I gather) than even the mighty Apple... but for most of us, our brand loyalty is skin deep. We don't really know who Samsung are, nor what they stand for. We have bought their smartphones simply because we think that they are the best at present.

    But if they screw us... by failing to upgrade our software... then their userbase will very quickly give them a very bloody nose.

    According to Samsung, the update won't be available until Q2 of this year. Not sure what the delay is caused by, but there you have it.

    I am led to believe that this will be part of the JB update.

    Yeah, it will be back to Apple and Verizon for me next time.
    Samsung has done this before, so it should not be a surprise.

    I can understand why some folks are a little disappointed that the JB update is taking longer than expected, but in all honesty, there's not much wrong with the Note as it is, so I'm not too worried if the updates doesn't appear that soon. I certainly wouldn't contemplate switching to Apple just because an update wasn't available as quickly as one would like. No Apple phone can do anywhere near what the Note can.

    hi guys,
    all due respect, but am i the only one to see this?

    the announcement in above link regarding premium suite is as it states "premium suite" which is a completely different software upgrade to jellybean.
    how do i know ?? i hear you ask...well in above mentioned link (which is samsungs official galaxy note page) if you click on specifications you will find that the Platform specs for the note is Android TM 4.1 (Jelly Bean) *upgradable.
    Now i aint no rocket scientist but that to me clearly indicates that premium suite is in fact an additional upgrade to 4.1 jelly bean so leading me to believe we will recieve the 4.1 upgrade BEFORE premium suite upgrade....and as the premium suite upgrade is due sometime february that would also lead me to believ 4.1 upgrade is pretty iminent.

    regards

    Baz

    The Samsung Premium Suite will be bundled with the JB update, so effectively it is the update we have all been waiting for and Samsung have definitely said it will be released in Q2 of this year.

    No one can really complain about the whole jb update. If you want fast OS updates, get a nexus device. Everyone knows updates from phone oem's take longer, especially through networks/carriers. Also, the fact we'll be getting premium suite, same as the note 2, I think we're getting a pretty good deal, they didn't need to include that.

    Omar, I don't think anyone is complaining about getting it. The real gripe is the way that it can never adhere to deadlines.... In August they said Q4 2012, then in December they said January and now we are hearing Q2 2013, so potentially 10 months later than first stated. It's a mess and I'd rather they just said nothing, or even said that JB was NOT coming to GT-N7000. That way I would be getting wound up at the farce along with thousands of others and also they wouldn't have to deal with the presure of allocating resources to an old phone instead of concentrating on innovation.....
    I'm no business guru but this can't do the business any favours......

    Welcome to the world of waiting for OEM's to push android os updates to your device. Just how it goes I'm afraid.

    I have one day left of my 30 days with my new Note. I'm gonna return it and get the Note 2 as I don't think the JB is gonna come out anytime soon. Samsung has pulled this before, so I don't expect the JB until probably 2014.

    If it's anything like ICS, the braintrust AT&T will add a minimum of 3 - 6 months to the schedule while they ensure their bloatware is working (if they do it at all).

    I remember bloatware from my old PC days. I don't think my carrier adds anything. What's an example of some bloatware they are adding to the phones? I remember with my iphone, I was upset I couldn't get rid of a bunch of apple apps like news stand and stocks.
