Owners of Samsung’s Galaxy Nexus on Verizon, rejoice! The carrier has just announced that the rollout of the highly anticipated update to the latest version of Jelly Bean, Android 4.2.2, is starting today. The new software will be pushed over the air and features a revamped camera including new photosphere capabilities. Also included in the update are the new Gesture Keyborad and lock screen widgets on top of smaller tweaks and bug fixes.
The update has been a long time coming, but the oft-neglected LTE version of the Galaxy Nexus will no longer trail behind other members of the special class of Google-powered handsets. Thanks to price cuts, the VZW Nexus has taken on a bit of a second life with owners that may not recognize it as a flagship development platform, but for those of us struggling with Big Red’s implementation since its launch, there is at least some satisfaction in this latest software upgrade.
