As Google prepares to deliver its first devices that launch with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, the Nexus 4 and Nexus 10, the driving force behind Android is also delivering the latest version of its operating system to the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and Google Nexus 7 tablet. Galaxy Nexus users have begun reporting that an over-the-air update that upgrades devices from Android 4.1 to Android 4.2 is rolling out to phones now.
The update applies only to the GSM versions of the Galaxy Nexus, not the CDMA/LTE variants of the phone tied to Sprint and Verizon. Users can check for an update by navigating to Settings > About Phone > System updates, or manually downloading and flashing the ROM from Google.
An update has also been sent to the Nexus 7 tablets that were sold before Google announced its product refresh two weeks ago. Nexus 7 owners can request an update through the About Phone page and expect it to arrive shortly, or manually install the ROM available here.via: Phandroid
