Iv been looking at Samsung tablets cause im a Samsung fan but they all seem to have ICS likin JB on my note 2 are they starting to update them? I have a kindle fire and dont like it much manly the OS sucks lol. So looking to get an android one.

    Welcome to the forum. There actually are more and more tablets out there with JB. All the ASUS Transformer line has JB and some of the Samsung's do as well although I can't tell you for certain which ones but JB is still only about 4.6% of the market based on the last figures I saw. Someone else may come along and give you some ideas on some of the other tablets that have it. The ASUS tablets and had jellybean for quite some time now.

    Hi Sharkattack and welcome to the forum.....I like your name, almost as creative as mine :-D.
    I was checking around myself about jelly bean for my note first edition and my Samsung8.9.I found out that I'll neve get the update on the 8.9 . I remember reading that the galaxy note10" was getting it and I guess by now it did get it and both the galaxy2 7" and 2 10" were good candidates since they both were sold with ics out of the box.....as we talk they might have got the update already ! Are you going to get another Samsung tablet?

    ASUS has managed to get updates out quicker than some other tablet manufacturers. The TF300 was among the first non Nexus line to get JB 4.2.

    This is what troubles us aswell.. since JB is as far as we are aware not more demanding with regards system resources than ICS, why don't they gradually switch to JB for all the new devices?

    I agree. Anything being released for the last month or more should have come with JB installed.
