Android 4.1 Jelly Bean Reaches Galaxy Nexus HSPA+

The Galaxy Nexus HSPA+ gets a taste of some Jelly Bean goodness

The Galaxy Nexus HSPA+ is the first smartphone to get an update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

Owners of the HSPA+ version of the Samsung-made Google-branded flagship phone should be getting a prompt for an over-the-air update in the coming days. Those using the standard Galaxy Nexus (the version available in the UK) and Nexus S handsets should be notified of an update in the near future.

Motorola Xoom tablet users will also be getting Jelly Bean soon (Motorola is now owned by Google, which may explain its swift upgrade schedule).

The Nexus 7 tablet will go on sale later in July and will be the first device to come with Android 4.1 out of the box.

Jelly Bean is an incremental upgrade but includes a more slick user interface experience, faster voice search and the Google Now app, which is said to be a more intelligent way to search, getting you “just the right information at just the right time.”

Errr ..... as far as I was aware it was the HSPA+ version of the GN that was sold in the UK.

There is no such thing as a 'Standard' GN.

Jelly Bean appeared on my Galaxy Nexus a couple of days ago.

UI is very responsive. Impressive. But Wi-Fi signal strength has dropped off precipitously - signal fluctuates between unusably weak and no network in about half my house which is a bit of a dealbreaker, so kind of regretting this update!
