Exactly. And historically Verizon has been one of the worst at getting android upgrades out fast.

Examples from recent memory:

Sprint (1st) and ATT(2nd) already have the s3 on jellybean, and Verizon hasn't caught up.

On the galaxy nexus, it took Verizon and sprint the longest to get their jellybean update. It took Verizon 3 months to push out the update, and I think sprint was around 2.

Both unacceptable for being flagship Google devices.
