Samsung has started updating the Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet, that we reviewed right here to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. SamMobile is reporting that the German Galaxy Note 10.1 is the first one to get the fresh software, that’s being pushed out to the pen-packing slate.

It totals to a 300 MB over the air download and after upgrading, the devices should run software version N8000XXBLJ9. The update arrives 3 months after the Galaxy Note 10.1 was launched in Europe and USA with Android 4.0 ICS. With this new update, the device is expected to get snappier, more responsive thanks to Project Butter and get more software goodies like Google Now. No idea what’s happening with the other Note 10.1 units outside Germany, but I’m guessing they’ll get the update soon, too.

If you want to get the software by yourselves, in the source link below there’s an ODIN-flashable version of the German ROM available. As usual, we recommend you to wait for the official software. Hopefully Android 4.2 will come faster to this quad core slate with 2 GB of RAM.
