Jelly Bean for Samsung Galaxy S III in Q4?

Jelly Bean for Samsung Galaxy S III in Q4?With manufacturers still struggling to get their heads around Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0), nothing much has been said about Jelly Bean (Android 4.1).

We know Samsung’s Nexus devices – the Nexus S and Galaxy Nexus – are at the front of the queue, and the cybernets appear convinced that the Galaxy S III ain’t far behind. For some reason.

A recent report by YouMobile suggested Samsung had "confirmed" Samsung Galaxy S III Jelly Bean action for Q4 (without specifying a source, anonymous or otherwise).

TechRadar reached out to Samsung about the purported confirmation, however Sammo merely reiterated the same vague statement:

"In the case that a new version of an Android operating system is publicly announced and released, Samsung will review the possibility of implementation to existing Samsung products with the Android operating system ("Update").

"Such a review will be based on various factors including, the overall effect of the update to Samsung products, the system requirements, the structural limitations, and the level of cooperation from the component suppliers and the software licensors.

"If Samsung decides to make the update available to the users it will be released upon successful completion of development."

A simple yes or no would’ve sufficed, Sammo.

Ain't far behind? Q4, seems far enough to me, could time it to coincide with ip5 as spoiler or Note 2 launch which will have JB on I guess.
Anyway isn't google sorting the software for the nexus phones.
