Today however I've received confirmation that Three's earlier word was inaccurate, and that the nippier Galaxy S3 will indeed come with Jelly Bean, which makes much more sense.

Three has now confirmed that the Ultrafast S3 will be 4G LTE compatible, meaning if you snap it up now, it should work with Three's 4G network when it launches.
That's certainly good news, though Three's 4G offering is still in the hypothetical stages -- we don't know how fast it will actually prove to be, or whether its coverage will be any good.
