After a long wait, Jelly Bean is here for the Samsung Galaxy III phone. The Galaxy III has surpassed the Apple iPhone in sales and is now the most popular selling smartphone on the market today. Other carriers like Sprint have released the update more than a month ago. The version of Jelly Bean 4.1 is not their newest version, 4.2 has already been released by Google.
The cause for delay in releasing an update is the carrier adds proprietary software to the operating system before it goes to market. For example, AT&T has their own version of navigation. AT&T wants uses to opt for AT&T apps and programs for revenue share. Hey, in business you have to make money, right? The question is how much is enough and at what cost to the users or consumers of the product.
Some people who have a Galaxy III phone are not even aware the handset they use is running on Ice Cream Sandwich now and that Jelly Bean is an improved update. But with that said, there are the techie people who can’t wait to the latest and greatest version Android. There is and always will be people who love innovation, improvements and enjoy a better way to get things done.
Jelly Bean represents a big improvement over Ice Cream Sandwich. Project Butter has changed the feel of the interface considerably and adds a much smoother and faster response to touch. This is done by changing the behavior of the processor. Also, there is a big update to the voice command function. This is moving closer to the functionality offered by Siri on the iPhone. Siri is known to be the best voice command software and is being integrated into the auto industry.
Try to update to jelly Bean using over the air method first, if that does not work use Kies to download and start enjoying the latest and greatest from Android.
