Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 update

Good news for those of you with the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1. Not only do you have a pretty good tablet with pretty great stylus (excuse us -- "S Pen) interaction, today you're getting an update to Android 4.1.2. Jelly Bean. New features should be in line with what we described in November -- the new "multiwindow" viewing and "air view" controls for the S Pen, "easy clip" for cutting out images, and updated applications to go along with it.

Folks in our forums are all over this one, so hit the link below and get your update on.

U.S. version of the Galaxy Note 10.1 getting its Android 4.1.2 update


Looks like the US is starting to roll out 15-Jan-2013. This morning when I woke up, there was a notification that I have a firmware update available. It went through a long boot cycle and when I checked I was now sitting on Version 4.1.2 . Google Now is supported, I can open multiple windows, I can resize split screen applications. This is cool. I'm in California.

Ok, I just tried it and I got a message saying "Access to the software update service is provided to users in the order in which they request it. Try later." :-( Oh well, I guess I will try again tomorrow. 

And it has the S-Pen functionality. Believe me, Interface is only part of what makes this the greatest tablet on the market. (Although the Nexus 7 is freaking awesome too....and the Nexus 10)

I envy you. My galaxy note 2 hasn't received the update yet, although it was sighted back December in Europe. Something wrong with international note 2 in US?

Got my update today, but Google Now will not turn on. Every time I try to turn it on, it takes me back to the setup screen to select "Yes, I'm in". I select that, but the settings show that Google Now is still turned off. :( I was really hoping to be able to use this feature if someone knows why it's doing this.

Edit: Discovered that I needed to go to Google Play and update Google Search. Once I did that, Google Now is working!

Nothing here in Florida either. It would be helpful if all who have gotten updates for their note 10.1 stated their locations so that those of us who haven't gotten it know what to expect or what to do. I don't want to use kies but instead get the update ota

Installed the update and now I keep getting a pop-up message saying to log into my Samsung account.....even though my Samsung account says I am already logged in. Any suggestions?
