While Jelly Bean for the Samsung Galaxy S III on AT&T has been available for over a month now, it’s only been available via Samsung’s Kies software — which may or may not have been a big deal for you. However, if you’re the patient kind and prefer getting your updates OTA (Over The Air), it’s time to fire up your Galaxy S III and become a member of the Jelly Bean club.
It would appear LG isn’t too confident in their attempt at a mobile phone comeback as they’ve set their 2013 goal a bit low in comparison to other major players. LG will be happy if they can sell 75 million handsets in 2013, and of that 75 million, they’re only shooting for a goal of 45 million smartphones.
If you happen to own a LG Optimus G, it’s time to start getting excited. It looks like Jelly Bean is on its way as LG has begun rolling out the Android 4.1 update to users in South Korea. Call me optimistic, but I don’t expect it to be very long before the rest of the Optimus G world starts seeing the update.
After Sony showed off its sleek dust proof, water resistant Xperia Z at CES, the question on everyone’s mind was: “when will it be available and how much will it cost?” While Sony gave a rough release date of Q1 2013, we’re now starting to see online retailers offering up the device for pre-order —giving us an idea of price and availability.
Samsung took to Flickr to throw out a few boastful numbers regarding the success of their Galaxy S line. Overall, the Galaxy S line managed to sell over 100 million units over the 2 years and 7 months they’ve been available. Among those units, the Galaxy S III model lead the pack with an impressive 190,000 units being sold per day and an overall sales figure of 40 million in just 7 months.
