I know we are all at the mercy of the carriers when it comes to SW updates for Android phones. Being seeing as how JB has been out for about a month now and the obvious improvements it brings like 'Project Butter' etc., will AT&T be willing to release this update faster than before for their flagship Android phone? Will customer pressure and general criticism of slow SW updates affect them at all?
What would be the best case scenario in terms of when we can see an OTA update of JB for the AT&T GS3s?
If the GSII is any indication, for the US carriers I'd say 9 to 10 months or just after the next version of android (Keylime Pie) is released.
I sure hope this doesn't hold true. I'm hoping g Samsung is actually going to try and do the right thing, like they did by keeping the phone pretty much universal across all carriers. I guess time will tell, though I did see a rumor from the Site Sam mobile that said Samsung was prepping jelly bean for an august debut. We'll see.
The GS4 will probably be here. AT&T, at least in my experience with BB OS updates, has always been very conservative. Hopefully not. Right now, being new to Android, I am having a great time with my GS3.
