testing for the Galaxy Nexus back at the beginning of February, and at the time, the rumor was that the update would be released in mid-February. That estimation turned out to be off by a solid month. Verizon announced today that the update is ready and it will start rolling out today.We had heard rumors that the Jelly Bean update was
The rollout will come in waves, but you should be getting the update soon enough, and you'll get to play around with the new gesture keyboard, and various camera features like Photosphere and filters.

- Camera 5 MP / 1.3 MP front
- Processor TI OMAP4460, Dual-core, 1200 MHz

I guess they missed the part about this being a Nexus device.

I guess you missed the part about Android being the number one mobile OS in the world by a factor of three, and Samsung (the maker of the Galaxy Nexus) being the number one maker of smartphones by several million.

No they don't. I bought a Nexus 4 unlocked 4 months ago. I've been on 4.2 from the get-go. It shouldn't take this long for a Nexus device to get an update. The Galaxy Nexus everywhere else has this update a long, long time ago. Nexus owners have had bug fixes for months.

Oh no, I'm going to sit here and complain that my Verizon Nexus is just getting 4.2.2... Oh wait. No I'm not. I realized a while ago that I have a NEXUS! The easiest phone to unlock the boot loader, root, and flash a custom ROM on. So I've actually had 4.2 since a couple days after it was released. Truth is, if you own a nexus and care about having the newest OS enough to complain on here about it you should take that 5 minutes you spent doing it instead on flashing 4 2. Cause that is all it takes is 5 minutes

Exactly! I've been running CyanogenMod 10 (originally) and 10.1 (now) since I got my Galaxy Nexus. No waiting for Verizon to get their act together, plus more control over, access to, and customization options for my phone! The Galaxy Nexus Toolkit (available over on XDA Developers) makes the process unbelievably easy.
