Vodafone has given us some news for its patient Galaxy Nexus customers. Finally, you can get Android 4.1.2 for your Galaxy Nexus from Vodafone. There’s lots of new features that — if you’ve used Jelly Bean on other devices — you’ll now be able to use, such as Google Now, together with all the performance improvements such as Project Butter. A number of small bugs and glitches have also been fixed.

The update will be available to customers as a wireless OTA upgrade and the rollout is commencing gradually. You can check Vodafone’s Support Page for the rollout schedule.

Sprint In US has just given their Nexus owners JB 4.2.1. So come on Samsung Australia and Australia Telcos, get your finger out and backside into gear and get the updates out. Why are we only getting JB 4.1.2 for Oz phones? Obviously Australian companies have forgotten what customer service is.
