Verizon has cooked up a little software update for the original Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet, which according to the carrier has been designed to improve the performance of the tablet. No new features are being introduced with this update and it certainly isn’t bumping the core Android OS up to KitKat, no matter how anxiously users wait to get a piece of the chocolatey goodness on their Android devices. With this update, the Verizon Galaxy Note 10.1’s software version will be bumped up to JZ054K.I925VRAMK1.
The update brings two new apps from Samsung which will become native once they’re installed. Samsung WatchOn allows users to view TV shows and movies on their tablets. Even if they start watching on a tablet, they can pick it up from where they left off on a TV. WatchOn also functions as a TV guide as well as a TV remote control. The app will provide users personalized recommendations based on their viewing history. The S Educate app offers access to Khan Academy’s library of thousands of educational videos, lets users view multiple videos side by side and search through the video library based on subjects such as art history, math and science. Users will also be able to download videos and watch them offline. The update is going to be rolled out over-the-air, so it will take some time before it pops up in your region.
