Samsung has already confirmed that Android 4.1 Jelly Bean will be making its way to the Galaxy S III at some point, but it's really starting to test our patience.
The update may already have gone out to Galaxy S III owners in Poland, and is being pushed out today in South Korea, but Samsung's insistence that the update would “gradually be introduced to other markets” leaves us no closer to knowing the UK rollout date than we did then.
Ironically, the market-by-market update strategy is at complete odds with Samsung's approach to the Galaxy S III itself – the Korean manufacturer made rather a big deal about the handset being launched simultaneously in a gazillion territories earlier in the year.
The update hasn't been made available to download over the air, so you'll have to plug in to your PC and go via the Kies method – which not everyone will be pleased about.
Still, better Kies than no update at all, so we're ready whenever you are, Samsung.
It's also worth reminding you that if you sign up for a Galaxy S III on EE's 4G service, your shiny new high-speed handset will have Android 4.1 Jelly Bean pre-loaded. For everyone else, though, the wait goes on.
