Verizon Galaxy Tab 2 7

 

After the initial Jelly Bean rollout for non-carrier branded devices, Veizon's Galaxy Tab 2 family is now getting its chance at some Jelly Bean goodness. This over the air update has been officially live for a few days, and it seems that a significant amount of users are finally getting the update pushed to their tablets. One of the biggest new features that comes packaged with this version of Android is Google Now, along with improved performance thanks to Project Butter. 7" Tab owners also get a new keyboard and updated softkeys, while those with a 10.1" Tab will now see lockscreen icons and an improved notification panel. For a full list of changes, see Verizon's official pages for the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 and the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1.

If you haven't already gotten the update notification manually, go to Settings in your tablet and tap on About Device, then System updates. You can't get this update while roaming, so connect to WiFi if needed. Is this update a huge improvement? Does it break anything? Let us know in the forums!

Thanks, mordoc!

Now if only they would update the 7.7 to official JB. CM 10.1 is nice but the battery life is wonky as shit and you have to give up the IR blaster. I think the 7.7 is still the best android tablet out there hardware wise (processor is a tad dated but still) and it would be nice to see it get official jellybean.

good,
