Sprint's Nexus models are now receiving Android 4.1 update...really
at the exact moment you need it, making the information much more valuable. For example, Google Now can push out a traffic report along your route just as you are about to go to work. It can give you current weather conditions just before you leave the house, when you could use it. Notifications can be expanded so you can read more of them from the Notifications screen. And when you're done, you take a page from webOS and whisk them away. Android Beam lets you send photos from one enabled phone to another without and wired connection, and widgets resize like magic on your home screen.
So as we pointed out earlier Wednesday, when word came that the Canadian versions of the Samsung GALAXY Nexus had received Jelly Bean, Verizon remains the last major carrier in North America not to have updated the phone.

most people who really wanted jelly bean would have moved onto a custom rom...
OEMs need to put more pressure on carriers to release updates quicker. it damages both of their reputations and extra testing won't do anything(testing is necessary but extra testing doesn't give you much)
or just do a beta testing version where users can sign up and bypass the extra testing(but allow verizon to be reported of all errors that appear while running the device)

every flag ship phone from every android company needs to have jelly bean......its service like that, that will put nails in the competition and make us feel more confident about our phone selections
time to tighten up android ........make jellybean a main priority from here on out!

Once again Verizon fails spectactularly. The Droid Razr Maxx HD is the only, and I mean, only reason they will get my money at this point.

This article is about both the Nexus S 4G AND the Galaxy Nexus. They both got updated to Jelly Bean on Sprint only.
