Verizon announced today that Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is headed to the Samsung Galaxy S III starting tomorrow. The carrier will push the update wirelessly to customers in batches, but if you can’t wait, you’ll also be able to download it manually within the next week. Along with the new features of Jelly Bean, the software adds world roaming capabilities, camera enhancements and support for the ISIS mobile payment system.
Verizon announced today it will offer the Samsung Galaxy Camera starting on Dec. 13 for $550. Like the AT&T version, the Android-based digital camera offers a 16-megapixel lens, 21X optical zoom and a 4.8-inch touchscreen. Users will be able to post photos to their social networks over Verizon’s 4G LTE network, but it does require a data plan. For a limited time, Verizon is allowing customers to add the device to a Shared Everything plan for $5 per month.
