    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?

    I had a blackberry, they have always been behind with updates and I'm sure this won't be any different

    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.

    I'm not looking forward to losing Flash support with JB, so I hope it's a while.

    How will Samsung incorporate Google Now with S-Voice. Seems like there is a clash of features there. Personally I prefer they just remove S-Voice completely and just go with Google Now.

    Only for the International version. Who knows how long for the carrier branded models. I won't be too hard on the carriers, the phone just came out and ICS is pretty sweet.

    Carrier branded GS3's won't see JB next month. I'd say October, maybe late September at best.

    Nah, they'll probably just disable Google Now.

    The truth about this is sorta sad....But it can be any where from today to the end of the year! Depending on what rumors you believe. I for one hope and think it will be sooner than later though!
