Google announced last night on its Nexus Google Plus page, that it has started to rollout the first Android 4.1/Jelly Bean upgrade for the GSM/HSPA version of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. When announced announced two weeks ago at the Google I/O, the Galaxy Nexus was the Jelly Bean reference hardware and every attendant got one. Now it's time for the rest of us to receive some sweets. Jelly Bean to Ice Cream Sandwich is similar like Windows 7 to Windows Vista. The improvements are the details which makes everything feel faster, fluid, and smoother. Notifications are expandable and actionable, widgets are magical and the keyboard is smarter and more accurate.

Jelly Bean also features a redesigned search experience, with a new user interface and faster Voice Search which allows to either type the query or simply ask Google a question. Google can speak back to, delivering a precise answer if it knows one, in addition to a list of search results.

Google Now is another major part of Jelly Bean and also part of the updated Google app. It's getting users just the right information at just the right time. Google Now tells you today's weather before you start your day, how much traffic to expect before you leave for work, or your favorite team's score as they're playing. There's no digging required: cards appear at the moment you need them most.

Customers with a Galaxy Nexus HSPA+ should receive a prompt alerting them to the update over the next several days. Up next for Jelly Bean are, according to Google, all (other non-HSSPA) Galaxy Nexus, Nexus S and the Motorola Xoom. Google's Nexus 7 tablet, which will ship later this month, will come with Jelly Bean preinstalled already.
