    Doubt it's going to be today now, Samsung just said "very soon" at IFA.

    What a letdown... I wasn't expecting it on my GS3 today, but I was hoping for a timeframe. Bummer

    They usually miss their deadlines so they're probably not giving us one this time :p

    The JB update referred today is for the international only correct? I assume it will be several months before AT&T etc get it after they test it.

    There's not likely to be an update today, Samsung just said "very soon." Nothing has been announced officially. It may come to all markets straight away, we don't know.

    I'm guessing OTA but my S2 and ICS was through Kies.

    Like most updates I'll wait for a confirmed date before I go checking every few minutes, I've learnt that 'very soon' can be a pretty flexible window.

    It might as well be after the official launch of the Galaxy Note II, which already runs JB. Let's see how it goes.

    Another reason to envy Apple...when an update is pushed everyone gets it and no carrier messes with it...

    Except for the part where their latest version updates takes iOS mostly up to the functionality of Android 1.6 coupled with HTC Sense 1.0, I agree completely.

    So, I think that they are the fastest slow around.

    Haven't you been reading the previous posts? :rolleyes: There is no point in checking.

    Besides, the previous RUMORS were saying it was for International (non-US) phones.

    So you'd like to have a buggy update? They never said they were going to release it today, it was only rumoured. If that is all it takes for you to make up your mind, oh well...

    It's not like JB is a huge update. You get some different animations (woopy-doo), more information in your notifications, project butter to make it smoother (although the S3 is already incredibly smooth), and Google Now (mildly useful).

    The S3 is not smooth compared to project butter. Go on YouTube, type in "project butter" and watch some of the videos of the Nexus running JB. The browser just flies, it's incredibly smooth. The S3 is very fast but animations are sometimes jittery.

    Google Now, Google Voice Search and the improved notifications are all very useful and what I'm looking forward to the most!

    Are you using an S3, must be one of the only owners I know dying to get back to Apple, why dont you like the S3?

    Plenty test Jelly Bean roms around to play with if you have itchy fingers, sister and nieces have 4s's and im not a bit impressed, they are mighty envious of the S3 though, no way im going the iphone route no matter what they bring out, saying that ive two 24" Imac's and love them

    LOL What?!?! Please explain your logic here? Apple is the let down of all let downs. How many times have you watched an Apple keynote waiting for an awesome NEW phone and have been let down because it is the exact same thing as its predecessor? Thats right EVERY TIME. At least you currently have the best phone on the market in your hands and you know the update will for sure be coming. Or as you said you can digress and hop back to Apple for the iPhone 5.
