Galaxy Note 2 Android 4.1, JellyBean Update With Multi-Window Feature Now Available

The Galaxy Note 2 Android 4.1.2, JellyBean update, which brings the multi-window feature to the phablet is now available in Canada, according to announcement made by Samsung.

The electronics giant took to its Canada Facebook page to announce the availability of the upgrade in the nation.

"Big Game Special Announcement: Galaxy Note II owners with national carriers will begin receiving the Multi Window and Chinese language support update (Android 4.1.2) on Wednesday. Thanks for your patience Samsung Nation," wrote the company.

The Android 4.1.2, JellyBean update brings many new features to the Galaxy Note 2, such as new additions in notification toggles, the ability to customize the notification panel, smoother browser, new ink effect on lockscreen, and a new group cast application.

The Galaxy Note 2 price dropped last week to $199 for customers looking to purchase the device through Amazon Wireless.

The retailer is cutting the price of the smartphone-tablet hybrid and offering it with a new 2-year contract on Verizon. The discount also applies to upgrades.

This Galaxy Note 2 normally retails for $299 and on T-Mobile it will run customers $370, so this is a great deal for those looking to save money and purchase the phablet. It is currently available through other major carriers such as AT&T, T-Mobile, and U.S. Cellular.

Sprint is also offering a great deal through Amazon Wireless selling its variant of the Galaxy Note 2 for $99. The AT&T version costs $249.99 through the site.

Samsung launched the Galaxy Note 2 in two new colors including Ruby Wine and Amber Brown models this week in South Korea.

The Galaxy Note 2 launched in the fall of 2012 and has been one of Samsung's most successful devices to date. The smartphone-tablet hybrid has already sold over 5 million units since its official launch.
