Sprint confirms Android 4.1 has started for Galaxy Nexus, Nexus S 4G

Sprint today confirmed that the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update has, in fact, started rolling out to their Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S 4G.  Rumored last week to have been ready to go, it’s official today.  According to the press release, the Android 4.1 update is hitting devices now in an over-the-air capacity.

Jelly Bean, as many of you know, provides the following enhancements to Nexus S 4G and Galaxy
Nexus:

  • Google Now, which gets you just the right information at just the right time, like how much traffic to expect before you leave for work or when the next train will arrive as you’re standing on the platform
  • Expandable, actionable notifications allowing you to take action directly from the notifications shade
  • Android Beam™ now lets you send photos and more
  • Widgets work like magic: as you place widgets on the screen, everything elseautomatically moves to make room; when they’re too big, widgets resize on their own
