Google Beams Out Jelly Bean to Some Galaxy Nexus Devices
Google just started pushing its new Android operating system update, known as Jelly Bean, to a large number of Galaxy Nexus devices.
Initially the update is going to those devices running the HSPA+ version of the phone, that is the one sold for use on networks such as AT&T and T-Mobile rather than the varieties sold for use on Sprint or Verizon.
Jelly Bean includes Google’s highly personalized assistant app Google Now as well as better notifications and a more accurate software keyboard.
Google had open-sourced Jelly Bean yesterday, and made a preview version of it available on the Galaxy Nexus phones and Nexus 7 tablets given away at Google I/O, but this is the first mass release.
Galaxy Nexus HSPA+ owners will be prompted about the update “over the next several days,” Google said.
Who’s getting Jelly Bean next?
Other Galaxy Nexus phones, Nexus S, Motorola Xoom and Nexus 7 owners. The Nexus 7 tablet ships later this month.
