I am answering my own question and will provide useful to others...
I received my tablet recently and what I found is it Comes with Jelly Bean OS 4.1 (First version pre-installed) (Amazon needs to correct product description)
Cheers!

Hi, Tab 2 at one time was Ice Cream back about 6 months ago or so. The updates from the manufacturer/From The Box came out a few months after that. I got my update notice on my Galaxy Note 10.1 in the 3rd week of Jan-2013. If it wasn't for Jelly Bean, I would have returned my Samsung Note 10.1 that had Ice Cream.

Jelly Bean fixed a lot of bugs and non user friendliness issues. Even if it came with Ice Cream, you can quickly download the update. This is not an issue. I've been through a lot of tablets and returns there of, and I've posted with Amazon my experience and technical issues with them...my recommendation? I would go with the Note 10.1... I have no doubt. I love the stylus, it works a lot better then my fingers... and less fingerprints. Jelly Bean fixed a lot of issues. Tab 2 has big discounts, but people are sucking up the Note 10.1 and you still get get a good discount with with the Note 10.1. Your choice of course. The version I have with my Note 10.1 is 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. see less Hi, Tab 2 at one time was Ice Cream back about 6 months ago or so.

Thanks for your responses to this question. I am specifically looking for Samsung Tab 2 10.1 not the Samsung Note 10.1 (They are different devices and costs) I guess I will figure out when I get mine and poke around the device to find out what ships by default but from the looks of it it could be Android 4.0 Ice Cream … see more Thanks for your responses to this question.

Having said, this page on Samsung states clearly says , Jelly Bean of some sorts see: http://www.samsung.com/us/mobile/galaxy-tab/GT-P5113TSYXAR
I will find out sooner or later if I can upgrade via OTA to Android 4.2, Jelly Bean and post the results to the Amazon community. see less
