Verizon Galaxy Nexus, being a member of the Nexus series should have been the first one to get the update but if this delay is continued for some more time, this failed Nexus member might turn out to be the last one getting the Jelly Bean update.
Over the weekend, ASUS Transformer Pad 300 was also added to the devices getting the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update and even though all the units are yet to get the update, the point is that a non-Nexus device got the update first rather than the Verizon Galaxy Nexus, who by the way is fully capable of handling Jelly Bean and in fact was sold on the fact that its a future proof device.
The delay in Jelly Bean update for Verizon Galaxy Nexus was actually expected by experts. Confused, right? Well apparently, the experts predicted the delay by considering the fact that it took Verizon full 5 months to release the first update for the Verizon Galaxy Nexus and thats when the update was need in a sort of urgency due to the device having so many bugs.
The delay in Jelly Bean update for Verizon Galaxy Nexus was also suggested by the fact that Sprint Nexus S 4G was leaved alone while the Jelly Bean rollout. At that point, it was more almost confirmed that the American users would have to wait for the update for some time now.
While buying a Nexus branded device, the customer always thinks that since the device comes directly from Google it is bound to have an upper hand in terms of OS and will deliver the pure Android experience one could ever find, but with the continuing delay in the release date for Verizon Galaxy Nexus Jelly Bean update we are forced to believe that apparently this is the Nexus which failed its predecessors.
