    Feels like pigs would have to fly before that happens. Makes no sense for a WiFi only device.

    Oh but it does. To Samsung maybe. Didn't they just release a few new tablets. Surely they wouldn't update our measly $500 device. They have $900 ones to sell. Sad to say, we'll be waiting. Cue the jeopardy theme.

    Compatibility, for example the new snote wont work on our note, new api-levels with new features for devs to make apps having more functionalities. Working trim I hope. Compatibility with new smart accessories. Etc...

    I would like to know where this update is. And no I do not think I deserve an update, the tablet works great the way it is. Just sucks when you spend this kind of money 3 months ago and you see all these new devices releasing and them releasing updated software for them. Makes you feel left behind. If that is Samsung's point then this will be the last Samsung tablet I purchase. It's coming up on 2 months since they advised that they would release KitKat for this device and that is the last I have seen or herd.

    Scott, don't short change yourself. You do deserve an update, as we all do. If not an update, then support. And I feel that the support for this tablet warrants not only an update but up to date features as well. I have said it before, this tablet was a flagship device at one point and is more than capable of handling up to date features. I think it's absolutely horrible how this tablet was released late 2012 and a year later, Samsung released another one and called it the 2014 edition. Great marketing on their part but, a lousy effort to fool the minds of those who know better. Why didn't they call this one the 2013 edition. Does any other device get a year added to its title? And all these clowns who wanna put you down and say you don't deserve an update, can kiss my A$$. Some of us don't have $500 to just flush down the toilet. I really can care less who flames this post, I stand behind what I believe. And a lot of people hide behind their keyboards and talk trash that they wouldn't talk when standing toe to toe in front of the person they're trolling. I'm not holding my breath for an update for this tablet. I'll keep this one til it dies and see what the market has at that time. Keep the faith though.

    Totally disagree - Samsung's only obligations are to its shareholders. If one disagrees with how it conducts its business, vote with your feet/dollars. Complaining will get zero results.

    As far as I know this is how technology works. There's always gonna be something newer and better not long after you buy the latest and greatest and companies are going to favor the latest and greatest. If they were to pump upgrades into the older devices they're essentially making it easy and even inviting for people to hang on to the old rather than spend money on the next latest and greatest which would make for a smaller profit margin. They like big money so why would they cut their own throats voluntarily?

    keep in mind the original Note 10.1 launched with ICS and later received a major update to Jelly Bean (minor maintenance updates since). At this point in its life cycle, the chance of it receiving any more major updates is low. To expect otherwise will just leave you disappointed.
    It will get kitkat.

    Keep also in mind that the original note 10.1 came market on September 2012, here, with ics and got jb on january 2013, four months later. Since then no android 4.2, 4.3 and we are waiting for 4.4. Meanwhile they made changes to the core application SNote and people got gray hairs when they tried to share their notes.

    It is at the end of its so called life cycle (18months) and they now are going to release kitkat. Why didnt they update it before? Before it costs money. Now they will give a final update to it and they saved alot of money by skipping over 4.2 and 4.3. But they also lost some customers, I bet. It was a very bad decision to let people who bought their flagship waiting and having problems e.g. with the compatibility. Business and educational sector lost its interest to invest money to tablets made by samsung. They really cant build they ecosystem around os and devices which are not kept up-to-date. Samsung had a very good chance to get a leg between the door and they missed it. People I know and who makes decisions for their companies (comp. stuff) have zero points interests to invest to android. Note 10.1 had its chance to make huge changes within companies and schools but samsung ruined it totally. They lost their interest to Note when they realized that Samsung cant even keep their flagship updated. What a missed opportunity!

    Doesn't Verizon have to get a hold of it first do their thing with it and take their time and release it when they're ready?

    And I just noticed that article is dated back in February.

    I repeat, don't hold your breath waiting. I too saw the February announcement. It reminded me of similar, equally hopeful one regarding an impending global upgrade of my GT 7.0 Plus (GT-P6210) from ICS to JB. Did it happen? Yup. Did it happen in the US? Nope. Eventually I rooted the device and flashed the UK version of the ROM and I was happily on my way although I eventually "gifted" the device and replaced it with a GT 3 8.0.

    After a major, official upgrade from HC to ICS, an OTA/Kies upgrade to JB the GT 7.0 Plus never happened in the US despite the announcement from Samsung. Just sayin'.

    Well, I live in Europe and my device(s) are (hence) carrier free too. And I dont believe they will shoot their leg letting customers in usa to be without the update. This is still one of their greatest tablet/phone they ever made. They also made this announcement both in usa and europe. Although they said it will depend on (again) carriers in usa. Btw why do you buy carrier-bound devices?? Isnt that the same as shooting your own leg by letting them to decide whether or not... And bloatware... Cant you just buy the the device and then choose the contract?

    I have a wifi-only device (N8013), so I have no issues with carriers - all the bloatware is provided by Samsung . I agree that the GN 10.1 is a great tablet but as for Samsung not shooting itself in the foot in the US, the point of my previous post is that that's exactly what they did regarding the GT-P6210 upgrade. That's why I have low expectations this time despite the February announcement. Even so, given the wonderful capabilities of this device as well as those of the new Note and Pro offerings, I remain a happy user and very likely will be a future customer of theirs.

    They will update this, BECAUSE it is at the end of the life-cycle. Why? Because when they do, the "old" hardware won't be able to run as well as the new version. Thus, they expect people will get frustrated with the lagging and lockups, and go out and buy a brand new tablet. They just hope people will be sucked into their ecosystem by then, and get a newer Note. It's what happened with my GS3, and they probably expect me to go out and buy a new GS4 or GS5. But I'm not.
