galaxy nexus jelly bean

After we saw a glimpse of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean on the Nexus 7 in June, it only took a few weeks for the jelly treat to arrive on the HSPA+ Galaxy Nexus. The same update didn’t come to Sprint’s variant until September 6 and Verizon’s much later in the month. We’re sure we’re not the only one wondering when the newer Jelly Bean will make it to the two CDMA variants.

We’ve seen Google pushing out the “December bug fixer” update to the Nexus 4, 7, and 10 just a few days back. Showing once and for all how it pays to go the Nexus way, the Galaxy Nexus has now joined the ranks of other Nexii that sport the latest Android software. The Android 4.2.1 update (build JOP40D) is now rolling out to the GSM Galaxy Nexus, both takju and yakju variants.
