Jelly Bean software update for the Google Nexus S is inbound at any moment
Sure, Google Nexus S owners out there have the option of checking out the new Android 4.1 Jelly Bean experience, but that means they’ll need to install an unofficial ROM to do so, which might stop some people dead in their tracks from checking it out. However, if you’re looking to go through the normal routes of obtaining the new experience, the wait doesn’t seem to be much longer.

Currently, some of the overseas wireless carriers are teasing its customers with the inevitable arrival of the highly anticipated software update for the Google Nexus S. Specifically, Vodafone Australia details on its site the following message:

Approved by Vodafone, roll out by Google scheduled for 1:00pm AEST, 19th July 2012. Keep an eye on our blog for further information.

Meanwhile, SFR France is telling its customers this juicy morsel of news:

However, the deployment is slightly delayed on the Nexus S! Jelly Bean should be deployed July 18, 2012!

At this point, it’s a safe bet to assume that these specific owners should be receiving notifications very soon regarding the availability of the new software. Still, we’re certain that US owners of the handset are eagerly waiting for the good news as well. Either way, the update is inbound!

Reason for buying Google phones rather than going for vendors like Samsung, HTC, LG etc

Nexus S is a Samsung device. It's the Nexus devices that get the updates first, the vendors have to modify the OS to meet what they want.

Yes, so if you buy the Nexus device you will get the update early, rather than waiting for it...

YES Sir. The Nexus device be it made my Samsung, HTC, or who ever gets that honor, gets the update directly from Google, not the OEM.

Waiting in high anticipation. I'd rather have the latest in software than hardware but if I can get both that would be great.
