Just earlier today, we found Sprint documents that confirmed the Galaxy Nexus variant on the Now Network would be receiving Jelly Bean today. Now, a Sprint employee has confirmed on its community message board that the Nexus S rollout will begin today. As with the GNex update, this will be an OTA, so no, refreshing over and over won't get it to you any faster.


Of course, it's still a reminder that CDMA Nexii get the short end of the stick. Not too short, mind you, as both of these phones will get Jelly Bean long before most devices from other manufacturers. However, it's still been a couple months since Jelly Bean first landed. It's not the longest wait in the world, but it does remind us that, at least for now, GSM is the way to go for timely updates.

    Pretty impressive, considering Verizon is still dragging its feet, as expected, while Sprint is rolling out JB on both Nexuses. Not a bad turnaround at all.
