Galaxy Nexus Gets Android 4.1 Jelly Bean

On Friday, the Galaxy Nexus (Samsung’s red-hot smartphone) became the first smartphone on the Verizon Wireless network to be upgraded to the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system.

Verizon said today that for a limited time, the software upgrade will be pushed out in phases over Wi-Fi only.

Customers can check if the software is available for their device by going to Settings > About Phone > System Updates. If the upgrade is available, a notification will be displayed and customers will need to connect to a Wi-Fi network to complete the download.

As you are probably aware, Jelly Bean is the newest Android OS and offers advanced functionality and new features like Google Now that feeds relevant information to a device based on time and location.
