Verizon Galaxy Nexus

It’s been a long time coming, but after the release of the latest flavor of Jelly Bean was teased two weeks ago, Verizon Wireless has officially started rolling out Android 4.2.2 to the Galaxy Nexus. You can start pinching yourself now. Does it hurt? Well, that’s because this is really happening.

As announced on its website, Big Red says that the OTA update is now being pushed out in phases to all weary owners of the former Nexus flagship phone. At last, you can stand tall with the rest of the Galaxy Nexus clans, except for Sprint’s. In fact, even some variants of the phone are still on Android 4.2.1.

As for what you can expect to get, the software update will bring features like Photo Sphere, which allows users to take a 360 degree panoramic shots, lock screen widgets, a new Gesture Keyboard, and hopefully some bug fixes and other enhancements.

Looking forward to see the update notification on your Verizon Galaxy Nexus? Or have you decided to take matter into your own hands? Either way, let us know in the comments below.

    I still haven’t gotten it… I live in NJ did anyone else get it?

    Isn’t there a way to force the update by changing a date?

    Got the update and it’s a disaster. Phone is VERY hot, and battery drains completely in about 3 hours after a full overnight charge. This needs to be fixed.

    Having owned 2 iPhones and now a nexus I can tell you the nexus is far superior. The nexus is truly user friendly and the iPhone not so much. I am an apple fan but love my nexus.
