If you own the Samsung Galaxy S III on AT&T, then now would be an appropriate time to furiously check for the Android 4.1 software update.  According to multiple reports originating from XDA-Developers, numerous AT&T Galaxy S III models were able to update to Jelly Bean through Kies.

The Android 4.1 update is 738MB in size, so it may be in your best interest to connect to WiFi before proceeding with the update.  As always, having enough internal memory and battery is requisite before upgrading.  In addition, users can expect to receive Jelly Bean specific enhancements to notifications, keyboard, Google Now, and Project Butter.  Samsung specific upgrades within Jelly Bean have yet to be disclosed.

The last remaining carrier to deploy Jelly Bean on the Galaxy S III is Verizon Wireless — in typical Big Red fashion.  Enjoy Jelly Bean if you’ve managed to install it on your Galaxy S III!
