Beginning today, AT&T will start pushing out the OTA (over the air) Android 4.1 update for the Samsung Galaxy S III. Samsung made the Jelly Bean update available back in December but required users to use its Kies computer software to download and install the update. AT&T and Samsung have not disclosed how many Galaxy S III owners have installed the update via Kies, but we have a feeling that the majority of handset owners are still running on Ice Cream Sandwich.
As usual, the OTA roll-out will go out in waves to ensure that there are no issues with the update. Apparently, AT&T is keeping a watchful eye on your data usage and is only allowing handset owners to download the update while connected to WiFi. It’s nice to see that AT&T cares about our data limits, but we have a feeling they chose this route to ensure that the company’s feeble network doesn’t crash as millions of handset owners jump at the opportunity to get a taste of Jelly Bean.
