Sprint Breaks The Seal on Jelly Bean

Sprint today became the first U.S. wireless carrier to offer the Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean update to its Samsung Galaxy S III customers.

The nation’s third largest carrier announced this morning that the update has already begun rolling out.

If you’re not familiar with Jelly Bean, the long-awaited update delivers a pretty impressive array of new and embellished TouchWiz features, all of which lend to what Sprint calls a “faster, richer and more responsive device experience.”

The update is available as an over the air update. When your Galaxy S III is eligible for the update, it will automatically download. Once the download is complete, you will be prompted to install the update. Installation will take a few minutes, and your device will be disabled during the installation process. It will be ready to use when the process is complete.
