Update only available via KIES software, AT&T makes the update offical
The Jelly Bean flavor of Android is hitting yet another phone today. (OK, this one's been available for a couple days now, but this morning AT&T made it official.) This time it's AT&T's Samsung Galaxy S2 Skyrocket that's getting Android 4.1.2, some nine months after its Ice Cream Sandwich update. This one's only available through Samsung's KIES desktop software, unfortunately, but that's a small price to pay for a big update.
Here's what you have to look forward to:
- Google Now with enhanced voice activation
- Adds Browser bar, Drive Mode, ATT Locker, Mobile Hot Spot, Featured Apps widget as preloaded applications
- Removes Qik and MSpot applications
- Improved Call Quality
Samsung's KIES software is available on Windows or Mac. Be sure you've got at least 50 percent battery before performing surgery.
