It's both funny and frustrating (or maybe just frustrating) how long it takes Verizon to get the newest versions of Android for their Nexus devices. Still, this afternoon's news will be welcome for folks who own the Verizon version of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. The 4.2.2 version of Android/Jelly Bean is officially coming to the device as of the time of this post. The new update will be going out in the usual separate groupings, so if you haven't seen yours yet don't despair. Here's a quote straight from Big Red sharing the details,

The Galaxy Nexus by Samsung will be updated to Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. The software will be pushed to Verizon Wireless customers in phases starting March 19.
Jelly Bean Panorama

The software includes new camera features such as photosphere to take 360 degree panoramic pictures that can easily be shared with friends. The camera app also has new tools to add filters and borders, further customizing pictures.

Additionally, an all new Gesture Keyboard is available, allowing users to slide their finger from letter to letter to type a word. Other enhancements include allowing users to place widgets on the lock screen for easier access to popular apps such as Calendar, Gmail and Clock.

I could remind you of that old saying that "good things come to those who wait," but really, just enjoy the fact that the latest version of Jelly Bean is finally coming to your Verizon device.
