I can't find a side by side comparison of the two changes. 4.1 (Jellybean) was a major upgrade behind the scenes of how the device operates. Subsequent updates (4.1.2, 4.2.2) have been minor bumps, specifically bug fixes and further tweaks and improvements to the way Android operates.

4.0 was the OS to merge tablet and phone version together to make the transition seamless. 4.1 I agree with magnus, that there was a lot of unseen changes to make the overall OS more smooth and battery friendly.

AS for 4.2 and 4.3, those are more tweaks, and bug fixes than anything else.

The mini just has less RAM and I think smaller internal storage. Otherwise, it can give the full s3 a run for it's money.

That is the version of Android. The update normally goes out in small groups and can take a few weeks.

You could. You would need to get a program called ODIN, and have the proper files. Search Samsung updates .com and look for your exact model number.

You need to look it up by exact model number. Settings>About Device>scroll all the way down.
You may need to connect to Kies to look up the region code.
