The Asus Transformer Prime Jelly Bean update is now available.

The tablet is finally getting Android 4.1 as it started to roll out earlier today. Asus delivered the news to Transformer Prime owners on its Facebook page.

Once the update is performed, Transformer Prime users will no longer be able to use Adobe Flash, according to the Asus.

Samsung released a web page this week to keep Galaxy S3 owners updated on the status of the roll out of Android 4.1, JellyBean on the device.

The Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean update began rolling out in Poland yesterday.

This is the first country to start receiving it and the rest of Europe should get it sometime in the near future.

The new firmware can be accessed OTA (over-the-air) or using Samsung KIES software. Samsung recommends that those performing the update use a Wi-Fi connection with at least 50 percent battery power.

Android 4.1, JellyBean on the Galaxy S3 brings with it Project Butter, which makes for smoother UI animations, Google Now, offline voice typing support, a better notification area with expandable notifications, and better settings organization.

The update also features two different modes for homescreen behavior, a resizable pop-up play window, S Note which replaces S Memo, a faster web browser, and all around major performance enhancement.

Samsung is already planning the launch of the next-generation model, the Galaxy S4.

New rumors surfaced in the Asian publication The Korea Times earlier this week that point to the handset being unveiled in Feb. 2013 at the next Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain.

The publication also stated that the device should be available in the early part of 2013.

Samsung reportedly made the decision to move forward with the Galaxy S4 shortly after the iPhone 5 was unveiled by Apple earlier this month. The Korea Times said that the company hopes to have its next flagship smartphone out by March of next year.
