Featured: Android 4.1.2 - Jelly Bean Now Pushing to GSM Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S Devices

Last week Android 4.1.2 became official, and Google started pushing it out to the Nexus 7. Today, Google is pushing out Android 4.1.2 to the GSM versions of the Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S. But for those of us with the Verizon or Sprint Galaxy Nexus and the Sprint Nexus S 4G, we'll be waiting much longer. It's been confirmed that Android 4.1.2 is rolling out to the "Yakju" Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S devices in the US and Canada.

For those that don't know what the Android 4.1.2 update brings, it gives us mostly just some stability improvements and bug fixes. But on the Nexus 7 it gives us a landscape home screen, which we've seen in many custom ROMs. Including AOKP, CyanogenMod 10, and Liquid Smooth.

To check for the update, you'll need to be stock. Then go into Settings, select About Phone, and System Updates. You can also get the factory image from Google's website which is linked in the sources below.

Anyone received the update yet? How are you liking it compared to Android 4.1.1? How much of a difference is there? Sound off in the comments below and let us know.
