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?
