Excitement continues to build around the world for the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 -- we're in NYC tonight for the Next Big Thing event -- but what of its predecessor? Owners of the original Galaxy Note are eagerly awaiting word on Jelly Bean for their beloved devices.

XDA Developers forums member eybee1970 has posted what is apparently the first full leaked official build of Android 4.1 for the original Note. However, this is an extremely early build, and flashing to your own devices is discouraged. Contained within are things we would expect to see from Jelly Bean -- Google Now for instance -- but there are things missing, and big nasty bugs within making this one not for the faint at heart. 

Word is, that the official update could be due to drop in December. A software update in early September brought a selection of the Samsung features from the Galaxy S3 and Note 2 to the Note, but we're under no illusions that it's Jelly Bean you folks want.

Hopefully, we won't have to wait as long for Jelly Bean as we waited for ICS.

Well, considering the Note went from Gingerbread to ICS to now JB, makes me happy that I'm getting the Note 2. Better support than my Droid X

December! Ok I can wait but hopefully that is only for the US variants and international versions are sooner.

Any word on whether the update brings some of that sweet sweet GNote 2 functionality with it? Rumors had we original adopters getting some of it at least?
