Last week, we noted that Android Central had received a tip that the Jellybean update for the Samsung Galaxy S III was coming as early as next (now, this) week. We also heard rumours that this same update would be coming to Telstra fairly soon, too.

It seems that Android Central were, at least with respect to Aussie carriers, a little off the mark with their prediction of this week, but at Samsung’s Unpacked event they’ve announced (more confirmed) the impending availability of Jelly Bean for the Galaxy S III as well as the Galaxy Note 10.1. They say this will happen “very soon” — in mobile manufacturer terms, who knows how soon very soon is?

Chris has been at the forefront of smartphone reporting in Australia since smartphones were a thing, and has used mobile phones since they came with giant lead-acid batteries that were "transportable" and were carried in a shoulder bag. He saw the transition from AMPS to GSM, loved the Motorola StarTac, and got into Palm technologies in a big way. The arrival some years later of the original iPhone, and then the early Androids, awoke a new interest in mobile technology, and Chris has been writing about it since.

Today, Chris publishes one of Australia's most popular technology websites, Ausdroid. His interests include mobile (of course), as well as connected technology and how it can make all our lives easier.
