Samsung posts open source files for Jelly Bean on Samsung Galaxy Tab devices, AT&T Galaxy Note II

Via their Open Source Release Center, Samsung has posted new updates to make open source files available for Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, Galaxy Tab 2 7.0, and AT&T Galaxy Note II devices. The listings indicate these are files for Android 4.1 Jelly Bean on these devices. In the case of the Galaxy Tab devices, this is noteworthy as the official Jelly Bean update has not yet been pushed out by Samsung to owners of these devices.

Samsung has previously indicated Jelly Bean would be coming to the Galaxy Tab 2 devices, but no firm dates have been set. The release of these files seems to imply official action is imminent. Sprint is slated to release a 4G LTE version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 this weekend. It does not seem to be much of a stretch of the imagination to conclude Sprint and Samsung would like this latest version of the device to come loaded with Jelly Bean. Making the update available for existing owners of Galaxy Tab devices some time this week would make sense.
