    I don't expect an ota for a while, but getting a leak to build roms out of would be at least something. We did get that 4.04 leak back in February that a lot of the verizon nexus roms were based off of for a while. So I could see that happening, but never a guarantee.

    I bet we see a leak much sooner. And as for that category...me thinks it's more like a 6 :p

    A leak would be great. But most of the Roms we're using today are based off of 4.0.4 source code, not the actual 4.0.4 VZW build. That is two different things.

    I don't see myself getting too excited over it until I know what Jelly bean brings to the table.

    Just check out out Edgadget and their blog on the I/O event. Everything is laid out on the table for the masses to see what newness it brings. ;)

    Quite a bit.
    For months it was rumored to be a minor incremental update. If what was revealed in the Keynote presentation is 'minor', I hate to see what Key Lime Pie will be when its released. ;)

    So how long until the Verizon Galaxy Nexus gets Jelly Bean? I am assuming when they say "mid july" for the OTA, they are referring to the GSM version.

    I say October-November for us verizon folk.

    officially? nobody knows. Unofficially as soon as it leaks. Verizon will take forever to release it most likely.

    I like the new notification panel features. I like the offline voice to text. The project butter improvements sound nice. I'm also interested in the USB Audio for docks. Beyond that, unless I am really missing something, I'm not overly excited about the update. Don't get me wrong, I want it, but it isn't anything I can see myself getting upset about not having right away.

    This really reminds me of the 2.0 to 2.1 update. I think this is the reason we didn't see a huge number of updates already. Most manufacturers are going to release 4.1 updates pretty soon.

    Sprint will probably be the same (or worse) for their GNex (Sprint, please prove me wrong!!!!)

    True - that is probably why they didn't call it 5.0 and stuck with 4.1.
    Wish they also bring MAP support for the BT as well.

    You're lucky, then. A bunch of us have been having issues in-call, where the sound quality is awful (for both parties) ever since the update.

    FREE STUFF: Google I/O 2012 (And We're Giving It All Away) - YouTube!


    WOW ...:rock::rock::rock::rock::rock:
    so everyone in attendance at I/O got a Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 7 and that worthless Nexus Q..worthless imo however the huge thing here is...

    The Galaxy Nexus they gave out has Jelly Bean pre installed on it....oh yeah. I can't wait till a sys image of this gets out in the wild.
