The Galaxy Note 10.1 users can now get excited as the highly-expected OS update has just been made available by Samsung and can be OTA (Over The Air) received and applied. Don’t get too enthusiastic though, as I am not talking about a Jelly Bean OTA release, ICS still being on charge for your recently launched tablet. Anyway, the OTA update is actually quite important due to the numerous bug fixes that come along, from now on, your Galaxy Note 10.1 being able to perform smoothly as the reported issues are being resolved.
The Note 10.1 tablet was not that “good” as Samsung presumed, the customers preferred (and still preferring) other Android powered tablets which were (at the time the Note was offered) already available on the market. Maybe that’s why Samsung is waiting so much with the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update, though many custom ROMs are being leaked for the Note 10.1 handsets. For those who don’t know, the device has high end specs with a quad core 1.4 GHz processor, 2 GB of RAM, 16 / 32 / 64 GB storage, 5 MP camera on the back and a 1.9 MP one in the front and the 10.1 PLS TFT capacitive touchscreen.
So, why isn’t this tablet more popular among Android users? An answer to this question might be its OS. As stated, Ice Cream Sandwich is on charge, but that’s not the only unfortunate thing about the Note 10.1. According to those who had tested the device, the system has numerous bugs and issues, so it’s really unpleasant to deal with such thing. Anyway, now with this OTA update Samsung had managed to resolve these problems, so the Galaxy Note is now running a more stable platform than it used to.
Now, the OTA improvement comes with KeyBoard pop-up issue fixed, landscape option included to S-Note, pal zoom bug in S-Note resolved, exFAT Fix – 64 GB microSD cards now supported, S-Note scroll bar included for being used when needed. The upgrade has 75 MB, so it is just a minor improvement to the stock ROM of your Galaxy Note 10.1. For being able to receive it, your tablet must have internet connection enabled or WiFi connection. All you have to do is to the Settings menu and choose to download and install the OTA update. Take note that the carrier might charge you for that.
