Samsung upgrades Galaxy Note 10.1 and Tab 2 to Android Jelly Bean

Samsung has started upgrading its Galaxy Note 10.1 and Galaxy Tab 2 tablet computers to Google's latest operating system - Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

The Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet was the first device in the series to support the multi-windows feature that allows users to run two applications side by side on single screen. Now, after the latest update, this feature comes with a cascade view on the tablet that allows users to freely resize, move and selected applications in multiple views, running at the same time.

However, the more fascinating features come from the company's Premium Suite, with special attention to the abilities of the S Pen.

The latest update also brings Air View that adds functions to use of a stylus. For instance, you can now float the stylus across the scrubbing bar to get a preview of thumbnails of the video section before jumping to a video. In addition, Air View works with email. It allows users float the stylus over an add-on icon to get a preview a mail message.

Using Samsung's Air View, you can also drift the stylus over folders and notes to pop-up preview.

A new Quick Command feature allows users to open applications that are used most often by writing command shortcuts by making use of either custom or predetermined stylus strokes.

The Jelly Bean update for the Galaxy Note 10.1 and Galaxy Tab 2 tablets can be received over the air or via Samsung's Kies software.
