According to sammobile Samsung Ukraine says : galaxy tablet 7.7 will get the latest version of android 4.2.1
no official release date yet.
but anything to keep the spirits up is more than welcome

here's the link

and here's the quote


More good update news is for the Galaxy Tab 7.7. Samsung says they will update this tablet to Android 4.2.1 called Jelly Bean. We are quite happy that Samsung decided to update their most wonderful tablet till date. The Galaxy Tab 7.7 uses Samsung’s own sAMOLED display.

[Update 20/3/2013]
Some bad news for us, Samsung will delay the update, but at least we have a time frame for such an update to see the light, also we will be lucky to have premium suite, Aren't we ?


There is some bad news for Galaxy Tab 7.7 users. Samsung’s first AMOLED tablet, the Galaxy Tab 7.7, will receive Android 4.1.2 later than planned. Samsung is having some problems with the Exynos processor. A good thing to know is some of the Galaxy Note 10.1 features will be included in the Galaxy Tab 7.7 premium suite update. The Update has been sceduled for May / June this year. There is no further information but we will keep you infirmed.


[Update 25/3/2013]
No more Delays, Software is under testing now, and planned to get updates in Q2/Q3 for version 4.2.2


The Galaxy Tab 2 by Samsung will receive Android 4.1.2 and end with Android 4.2.2. Samsung will no longer support the Galaxy Tab 2 after the Android 4.2.2 update. The updates must be done before the end of September. The issue with Samsung’s Exynos processor has been resolved and Samsung has, once again, started to test Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean firmwares for the Galaxy Tab 7.7 (GT-P6800) and Galaxy Tab Plus (GT-P6200).

Everything sounds a bit far away but Samsung really wants to update all tablets in Q2 and Q3 to Android 4.1.2 or maybe directly to Android 4.2.2.

[Update 2/5/2013]
Samsung Thailand set the estimated release date in May 2013
according to this website:

Samsung Starts to Roll out The JB update for GT-P6800
Information about the firmware:
Android 4.1.2
Date: 04 – 22 – 2013
Region: Singapore, Indonesia, Singapore (StarHub), Thailand, Vietnam, Philippines (Globe), Singapore (SingTel), Philippines (Sun), Malaysia

And heres a screen shots, Thanks to edan1979

Enjoy the new ROM guys.

I won't believe anything until I can flash it via Odin/CW or it shows up as an OTA.

Seriously, just abandon hope for Jellybean (especially 4.2!) and enjoy your tab as is. If an update comes, it will be a nice surprise.

sammobile is respectful source, look at the first time he published the update data from samsaung Thailand.
he said he isn't sure, and he will ask Samsung Benelux for a confirmation.
Knowing that it's same publisher "Published by DannyD" who published both topics.

This time he looks sure in the news, like he got the reply or something
if the news is right, we will see more confirmation in the next week or something.

I hope that this rumour is correct, if it is not I will not buy any Samsung Android product again - their slackness with updates is really bad.

The 4.0.4 release is not great, and the wifi is still not 100% even on the latest releases.

I am considering just binning the P6800 and using an Nexus 7 32GB 3G. Will miss the card slot, though.
