When Google announced Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, I immediately became excited. Not because it was a complete overhaul to what I consider to be the best Android operating system to date but because of the little nuances that Google added to Jelly Bean. And finally, after a bit of a wait, I received the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean update for my Nexus 7 last night. Did it match up with my excitement? Read on as I present my first impressions of the Nexus 7 Android 4.2 Jelly Bean update.

Yesterday, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean began rolling out for the Nexus 7 and the Samsung Galaxy Nexus smartphone. Both updates seem to be rolling out relatively slow as I’ve heard from many Nexus 7 owners who have yet to receive the update from Google.

Updated mine about 1hr ago, and went straight ahead and set my wife up with her own user account. Smooth as you like :)

Still waiting for my phone [Galaxy Nexus] to get pinged with info about the update, so I can update to 4.2, hopefully will happen within the week.
