Sprint has confirmed that it is now distributing Android 4.1 Jelly Bean to the Galaxy Nexus. The update will be delivered to devices over the air starting today and will continue to roll out for several weeks. In addition to Jelly Bean and its various improvements, the update also adds Google Now, and removes support for Adobe Flash Mobile Player. Sprint has also revealed that Jelly Bean is on its way to the Nexus S, as well, though it didn't reveal a specific time frame.

Correct Me If I Am Wrong...

I thought the whole point of a Nexus device was that you had a "Pure Google" experience and this meant no carrier bloatware and in addition that you got updates as soon as Google made them available and you didn't have to wait for your carrier to filter the update, water the update down or sniff it out for enhancements that would harm the carriers network (by "harm the network" I mean any enhancements that would allow you to do something for free that the carrier could have charged you an MRC or Overage for...)

Kudos to Sprint for pushing it out but, I didn't know the carriers had a say so on the Nexus lines up
It's really only 'pure Google' if you buy the unlocked version..
