Because of Apple Google had to change some things in their Android 4.1.1 update for the Galaxy Nexus.

Android 4.1.1 aka Jelly Bean is faster and smoother than previous Android versions. Additionally, the notifications are now expandable, comes with improved search and Google Now support.

Samsung still need to post their own statement about Android 4.1.
We think that Samsung will update the Galaxy SII, Galaxy Note and Galaxy SIII for the Galaxy tablets we put our hope on the Galaxy Tab 7.7.

is Samsung does not keep updating SGS 2 until it’s hardware is capable of running smooth on new versions of android, and it is diching support because they released SGS 3, i’m going to apple for smart phones.

Samsung has everything to gain if they upgrade old models like SGS2…
Imagine:
If a person want a good phone with a nice camera, but they don’t have the money to buy the top end phone they will buy the previous one. And they expect to be with last SO.
When Apple launches Iphone 5 there will be people to buy the 4S if the price lowers…
So Samsung can beat Apple sales like:
SGS3 concurrent with Iphone 5
SGS2 concurrent with Iphone 4S

I think (as you too) that Samsung should update SGSII to 4.1, not only because users demand it, but also because those who buy SGS3 mostly came from other phones, even SGSII… I mean, they sales doesn´t going to be affected for firmwares o version´s, only for what the others manufacturers do.

We have to be sure that the company we use, is going to be olways whit us.

mykhyeo. Could be, but Samsung need to come up with a damn good reason for the Tab owners to explain why they dont upgrade those device to JB. JB is a smaller upgrade than ICS.
Marketing wise your right but customer support wise your wrong. There are two sides, so lets see which one Samsung will pick ;).

I think Apple should release new iPhone every half a year and new iOS every 4 months!!! That should up the stake.

Samsung can not do this forever. “this” I mean make new machings with improvement and new firmwares that does not support the older ones – what the heck? But most would know that this is their lame marketting strategy which won’t work all the time, especially when iPhone 5 is looming. The closeer to the release of the new iphone 5 the more they release updates

mykhyeo, I totally agree with you. It is ashame that some marketting strategy does not work for all mobile company. It may seem that some are doing well but in a way they are slowly digging their own grave. I did not know that other brand have better firmwares support? I thought Android was all the same. It is good to hear because I have been waiting and waiting….. and waiting….. I bought the phone and suppose to be using it, instead I have to worry about waiing and bug fixing. If this is not true, then consumer should be… Read more »

No, i don’t think so Samsung will update the Galaxy Tab (Not Tab 2) to Jelly Bean, cause this about the revenue, if Samsung giving update for the old model device the consumer will stay on the current device and the Sales of Samsung will not increase. 2nd that will waste the resource on develop the old model machine firmware. Next time if want buy the android device i will not choose Samsung, i will choose Pure Google Android Phone like Nexus, Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 7 and Other brand Such like Motorola, Asus, Acer, cause this all will caring about… Read more »

Well…I think all the following Samsung devices will get 4.1.x update in the following order:

– Samsung Galaxy SIII
– Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (10.1/7.0)
– Samsung Galaxy SII
– Samsung Galaxy Note
– Samsung Galaxy Tab (7.7/Plus/10.1/8.9/7.0)

Spec wise (dual core, 1gig RAM) all those devices are more than capable off handling 4.1.x and already have or are next in line for the 4.0.x update. I think all devices that receive the ICS update will receive a JB update.
