frio, 13 Nov 2012any words for the nexus s for 4.2 , now i have the 4.1.2 , i know its an old phone :))About 4.2 on Nexus S and XOOM, nope:
"There is no support for 4.2 on Nexus S and Xoom. Those devices should continue using 4.1.2."
~~ Jean-Baptiste M. "JBQ" Queru
Technical Lead, Android Open Source Project, Google.
He also added:
I can't comment about the future of Nexus S and Xoom, sorry."
So at very lease, 4.2 initial release won't be available to Nexus S or Xoom and it wasn't disclosed if there will ever be an official version past 4.1.2 ... :/

Anonymous, 13 Nov 2012Running jelly bean on a 3 and a half year old device would be slow too. As for features: pass... moreOne of the best features of Jelly Bean 4.2 is to be lighter to operate. I've seen it installed already and it is working smoother, so no problem there.
rinz, 13 Nov 2012Can anyone tell when you will get jb 4.2 for s3 Another GSMA article mentioned possible late December for 4.2 ... or it might haver been 4.1.2. Anyway I'm still waiting for 4.1.1 (sigh)
Why are people bothering to ask about other phones?
If nexus phones haven't got it all, what makes you think other models will get it soon?
Running jelly bean on a 3 and a half year old device would be slow too.
As for features: passbook, do not disturb, new emal and Apple Maps are included for a start. Which is more than the SgS. 1 is currently getting.
Anonymous, 13 Nov 2012Anyone received the yakju update? There is a zip update for yakju floating around but problems... moreAny clue when yakju ones would be getting the update and does it matter that I live in Pakistan
rinz, 13 Nov 2012Can anyone tell when you will get jb 4.2 for s3 Next weak

Someone, 13 Nov 2012Remember that with iOS 6.0 3GS (2009) got this update. No Siri or Voice Navigation. 4 (2... moreWhats the point of having ios6 on your 3gs when you dont get the major features? Bigger version number? Lol. Besides, upgrading them to ios6 is pointless because it slows the phone without adding any major benefit.
Anonymous, 13 Nov 2012And this is the difference between android updates and apple updates.
When an android phone... moreRemember that with iOS 6.0
3GS (2009) got this update. No Siri or Voice Navigation.
4 (2010) got this update. No Siri or Voice Navigation.
4S (2011) got this update, all features.
5 (2012) preloaded with 6.0
Not bad for Apple who are allowing their 2009 phones which are 3 and a half years old to get these - although they don't get all of the features.
Better than being stuck on Gingerbread, right??
