The first reports of the update began arriving in the forums on Monday morning that the update was available in Poland. Other European countries then followed and reports came in from Romania about the update hitting users there.

Samsung had said that the update would be available in October, so it seems some parts of Europe are seeing it earlier. The Samsung Galaxy S3 happens to one of the most prominent of devices in the stable of Android at the moment and Samsung are one of the leaders in the Android market. The update to Jelly Bean does come with customizations from Samsung and one of the biggest changes is Google Now.
