Samsung has begun updating its Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, according to reports. Samsung fansite SamMobile is reporting that German Note 10.1 devices are first in line for the update, which is being pushed out to the pen-toting tablet as a 300MB over-the-air download. After upgrading, updated devices should be running software version N8000XXBLJ9.
The update comes almost three months after the Galaxy Note 10.1 launched in the U.S. and Europe with ICS -- one of the last Samsung flagship devices to ship with Android 4.0. With this latest software update, Note 10.1 owners can look forward to improved responsiveness thanks to Google's "Project Butter" enhancements, as well as other software goodies like the new Google Search app with Google Now.
We've yet to hear any reports of Galaxy Note 10.1 tablets outside of Germany getting this update, but in the event that you're seeing an OTA waiting on your Note 10.1 this morning, be sure to let us know in the comments section. If you're feeling brave, you'll find an ODIN-flashable version of the German ROM over at the source link. (If you don't know what that is, it's probably best to wait it out)
