If you're the proud new owner of a Galaxy Nexus on Verizon, then your device should be receiving its first OTA update sometime today. It's mostly a bug-fixer, with a few optimizations thrown into the mix:

Device features

  • Optimized Mobile Hotspot when used with VPN.
  • Optimized 3G/4G data sessions for faster response times.
  • Fixed an incorrect notification that “data wasdisconnected due to roaming”.
  • Wi-Fi now automatically reconnects when returning to a known Access Point.
  • Improvements to special visual effects feature when using front-facing camcorder.
  • Visual improvements to the lock screen.

Email and Messaging

  • Fixed an issue where some email attachments would not open correctly.

Apps and Widgets

  • DivX support has been removed, and will be supported in a future upgrade.
  • Improved audio volume in Google navigation turn-by-turn directions.

    Didn't the phone just come out today? And there's already an update for it? Interesting. Are these updates from Google (by way of Verizon) or are they from Verizon themselves?

      It happens all the times. Phone has to be physically shipped to retailers. Before that, it has to be sit in a warehouse.

      This happens all the time. Most phones have an ota right away or a few days after launch.

    Anyone care to screenshot/record the differences in the lockscreen? I assume they'll be subtle, I'm I'm just wondering what they "improved."

    Activated my Nexus a couple hours ago, got the update as soon as I got home.

    Didn't use it more than five minutes befote the update rolled out, so I never noticed a difference.

    Btw, this phone is AMAZING. Upgraded from an LG G2x, and the difference is night and day. This phone is soo much better it's ridiculous.

    just got one today also. upgraded from a droid eris. this thing blows it out of the water. I also own a galaxy 10.1 and the ICS interface is actually much nicer, but has different features since it's a phone. cant wait to see ICS on the tablet.
