Bell & Rogers Galaxy Note updated to 4.1 Jelly Bean

image

Last week users of Telus’s Galaxy Note from Samsung got updated to Android version 4.1 Jelly Bean and now it’s users of the Bell & Rogers models getting the sweet treat.
Samsung stated that however at the moment the update for those carriers will have to be done via KIES software through your PC. I’m sure OTA updates will be pushed soon but as for now it’s only available through KIES. So make sure you have the most recent version of KIES installed on your PC & connect your Note to an available USB port and follow the onscreen directions. Make sure not to turn off your phone or disconnect it till the update is complete or you could run into some issues.
After you update & have a little time with your updated  device come back & let us know what you think. What’s your favorite feature is that the new JB update has brought to your Galaxy Note?
Let us know in the comments section below.

Telus had the original Samsung Galaxy Note update to Jelly Bean listed for May & have stayed very true to their word. May has just begun & said update has already begun to be pushed to the device OTA. It’s also available via Samsung’s KIES software on your PC. So if you haven’t received notification of the update on your Galaxy Note & you just can’t wait for it to be pushed to your device then connect it to your PC & Samsung’s software suite to get the update now.
Keep in mind that you may have to update KIES before your Galaxy Note will connect, so check for an update of the PC software if you have any issues.

After you’ve updated and had a chance to try the upgrade out come back & let us know what you think, & what’s your favorite addition or tweak to your phone that the upgrade brought?

8″ seems to be a perfect fit into the Note lineup as 7″ would have been too close to the Note 2’s 5.5″ display.

The Note series is an amazing series of devices with the capabilities to do much more than the average device. In fact I run this entire website off of my Galaxy Note 2, from writing & editing articles to posting them, answering comments/questions & even creating some of the photos you see (learning that just the past couple days) , it does it all. Once you go Note you’ll never go back.

So are you in the market for a tablet? If your creative or want to use your tablet for work then you should really take a look at a Galaxy Note.
If you have any questions about the Note series hit me up in the comment section below & I’ll be happy to answer them.
