    According to the Australian carrier Telstra, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will not be receiving the Android 4.2.2 update. Luckily there is no reason to fret though. The reason for this is because it will be skipping that version and will instead go straight to Android 4.3. Here's a quote from the carrier on the subject,

    Although this has not been officially confirmed by Samsung, we have been hearing rumors that several Samsung devices will go this route. It's great to see a third party pseudo-confirmation of this. We will keep you updated as soon as it becomes official!

    "You know that 4.2.2 update you've been waiting for? Yeah, we're not going to do that. But you'll get 4.3. At some unspecified point. Eventually"

    But honestly, at this point OS updates are kind of overrated. I probably wouldn't notice 90%+ of it. The main thing is the software updates, and you don't need the latest Android for that.

    Although Google could do so much more with context/smart settings. And an integrated messaging widget - that's the most glaringly ignored feature. There are 3rd party apps, but they require constant hacks as Google cranks-up security and locks the API.

    Agreed. The jump to ICS was pretty epic. JB was another nice bump just not as crazy. Now the .2's or the .3's dont get me that fired up.
