Last week, Google and Verizon starting pushing out Android 4.1 Jelly Bean for the Verizon Galaxy Nexus. However, it has become apparent that some owners are still waiting for the update to arrive, an indication that the software is still rolling out and probably rolling out slowly.
On Friday of last week, just as Apple released its iPhone 5, the Verizon Galaxy Nexus Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update arrived for some owners after a lengthy wait.
Some owners were able to pull it down Over-the-Air and others were able to use a manual trick in order to snag the new software. Others though, weren’t so lucky.
I decided to wait to see just how long it would take for the update to arrive and this morning, my Galaxy Nexus finally got the upgrade to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. I will be sharing my thoughts later today.
I imagine there are other people that were in a similar boat over the weekend and it could be that today is the day that Android 4.1 Jelly Bean finally arrives for your device. Keep in mind, Sprint’s Galaxy Nexus Jelly Bean update did something similar in that it rolled out extremely slow and then starting hitting the masses a few days later.
So, for those that own a Verizon Galaxy Nexus, it might be worth taking a peek and seeing whether the update has become available today.
Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is a massive improvement over Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and it brings a number of new features and improvements to the table. A sampling includes a faster, smoother UI, offline Voice diction, better voice search, more photography options in the camera application and a whole lot more.
It’s an update that is worth picking up.
Anyone out there still waiting for Android 4.1 Jelly Bean?
