Android 4.1 Jelly Bean Reaches Galaxy Nexus

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.”
