Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 7 Android 4.2 update begins

The latest version of Jelly Bean is landing on older Nexus devices, according to reports.

The very latest version of Android -- that's Android 4.2 Jelly Bean -- is now landing on older Nexus devices, according to reports.

Commenters on CNET, Twitter and Google+ have said that the update is landing on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, the 4.7-inch smart phone we've been fawning over since its November 2011 debut.

The Nexus 7 is also being anointed with an over the air update, according to Android Police and commenters on our very own Facebook wall. We haven't spied the spangly new software arriving on our in-office Nexus 7, but if you've seen it popping up on yours, drop us a note in the comments or on Facebook.

Android 4.2 is already up and running on the Nexus 4 and Nexus 10 -- the latest Google-own-brand devices to hit shop shelves. The Nexus 4 is an extremely desirable gadget, thanks to a 4.7-inch display with a shockingly high pixel count, as well as a quad-core processor and a how-low-can-you-go £239 price tag.

Good luck getting your mitts on one though, as the Nexus 4 has already sold out from Google Play, which seems to be the only place where you can snap it up at that bargain price. The powerful Nexus 10 tablet is sold out as well.

Google says on both product pages, "We are out of inventory. Please check back soon."

Android 4.2 brings a slew of seductive new software treats, including Photo Sphere, which lets you take a Street View-style 360-degree snap of your surroundings.
