If this is a finalized listing, it would affect sale of some current model just like I have considered getting GS Premier but if the firmware upgrade stops at JB, then just forget it to get other brand.

Well, good job keeping the S2 updates alive for 2 years Samsung. It fits the 18 months update policy of Google. S2 *can* probably run 5.0 but not with TouchWiz. The same reason the S1 didn't get ICS but Nexus S did. If you want higher updates, root and flash a custom ROM.

So the note comes out about a year ago(?) and they drop support? That is pretty low, Note owners help Samsung prove there is a market for phablets and they are rewarded by being dropped from any latest updates.... Grand.

If you're unhappy with this you can always move to CyanogenMod which always follows the latest version.

If a HTC HD2 can run Jelly Bean...

Any timeframe on the SII JB update in the UK ???

Been expected it "In March" for ages. My ICS SII is pretty unstable, starting to get a little annoyed of having to reset it when it keeps freezing.

in my opinion, as long as you own the fone, you must be receiving updates no matter what

They get the 7.8 update which houses the same features except for the support for the memory card since they don't have card slots. Haha
