AnonD-202, 24 Sep 2012Voila: http://www.theverge.com/2012/9/24/3381542/samsung-galaxy-s-iii-android-jelly-bean-updat... morethat's not so important anymore , the WP8 era just launched. in a few weeks you will not hear anymore of android.
SGS2 users like me will have to languish with pain as we try to check the availability of the update. I will never forget how I waited for months for the ICS update. I resorted to updating my SGS2 manually through Odin, and now I can no longer update with Kies! My galaxy Tab is also waiting for ICS...Its so painful to own a Samsung device...
The Gingerbread OS (let alone the ICS or Jellybean) is still more functional than the iOS6. Apple users are brainwashed and they refuse to see the light and freedom that Android has brought. It's clear that Apple doesn't listen to people and they do whatever they want, and y'all have to live with it that way.
It's so annoying that very little things that make using a phone nice and enjoyable, Apple decides to leave out.
Android is simply the best and since I got the SGS3, I have never regretted my choice.
I won't lie and say that I haven't experienced some minor lags. I have. But they are negligible and I won't trade that for a closed and mundane iPhone experience.
I can't wait for the Jellybean update to come to Nigeria.
SAMSUNG RULES!! ANDROID RULES!! APPLE SUCKS.
Thanks GSM for this much waited news, you should now post a live world map indicating country received update. We in Asian region has not received any OTA upgrade yet.

I've seen a custom ROM of Jelly Bean on the SGS3, and it's lightning fast. It's what ICS should have been.
For the SGS2 owners sake, I hope that the update is as fast for them without using up too much RAM. (SGS2 gets regular 500-700mb usage out of 856mb with multitasking)
AnonD-73059, 24 Sep 2012Anybody have a clue about when the update will hit South Africa??Don't know, I am also from South Africa and waiting for the update. Maybe ask Vodacom/Vodaworld or MTN or go to a Samsung shop like the one in the Clearwater Mall in Gauteng.
I had iphone from 2007 upto now chnaging each year with new model, and I was waiting for iPhone 5, after leaked its features then I compared iPhone 5 and Galaxy S3, in terms of features I decide to go to Galaxy S3 and i bought but now I realized this Galaxy S3 is useless and not user friendly mobile as iPhone is.

AnonD-73057, 24 Sep 2012from the last three years i have always on the top charts.....nokia N97, blackberry BOLD, sams... moretotally with you. Tried and have the samsung galaxy s3 and its great. There are also apps for 69p (UK money)whereas Apple was selling the same app for £5.99. Love the way everything is so smooth and you can swipe your hand across the screen and you get a screen grab. Also you can pay for items just by swiping the phone which is linked to your credit card. Hope the Jelly bean shows something new. Pretty excited.
Good News and Congtrats to all S3 users. Maybe when my extra penny is enough I'll get myself an S3 as a reward. But as of the moment, I'll stick with my berry first.

Yeah, always the same with iPhone users. Always acting like they are getting updates. They get updates, like SGS1 getting Jelly Bean now, but without Face Unlock, no project Butter, no new chrome browser, No data counter and so on... What kind of updates are those? What did a 3GS gain since iOS4? No siri... You get halve of what is an update, because there is no real update, other than the number of the iOS version. My 3GS gets more than 2 years of updates... So what? What did it actually gain? Nothing, new Maps app, which all seem to dislike. If you get an update for your Droid, you at least get the whole thing. ICS gave everybody the features of ICS. There wont be a single device, which gets official update to JB, which wont have project butter. Updates, which are no real updates, are worthless to even talk about.
