Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S 4G owners on Sprint's network are now getting a bite of Jelly Bean.

As of yesterday, Android 4.1.1, aka Jelly Bean, has been available for Nexus users through an over-the-air update. Owners of the Samsung phone can follow the steps on Sprint's Galaxy Nexus update page to download and install the latest version if they don't already have it.

The Nexus S 4G is also getting the Jelly Bean treatment over Sprint's network. Like the update for the Galaxy Nexus, this one is available over the air. Users will receive a message asking whether to install the update now or later. Choosing to install it later will trigger reminders once or twice each day until it's installed.

The deployment itself may take a while.

A message posted by a Sprint employee on the company's community forums said it will be a "slow roll out" and will take a little over a week to reach all owners of the Nexus S phones.
