Google announced Android 4.1 Jelly Bean back in June and pushed it out to the unlocked GSM Galaxy Nexus a few weeks later, but Verizon's version has remained stuck on Ice Cream Sandwich. However, with very little fanfare, it seems that the carrier finally started pushing out the latest version of Android to some Galaxy Nexus users.

Google announced Android 4.1 Jelly Bean back in June and released it for the unlocked GSM Galaxy Nexus a few weeks later, but Verizon's version has remained stuck on Ice Cream Sandwich. However, with very little fanfare, the carrier finally released the latest version of Android to Galaxy Nexus users. This comes just a few weeks after Sprint updated its own Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S hardware to the latest version of Android — Verizon's a little late, but the Galaxy Nexus is still getting Jelly Bean a lot faster than some handsets on the market. Verizon has put up a PDF with all the details on the 146MB update on its site, so check your phones now — the update should be rolling out any time now.
