Nexus 7 and HSPA+ Galaxy Nexus get Android 4.2.1 update

This morning, Google began rolling out the Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean update for the LG Nexus 4 and Nexus 10 devices. A few hours later, an update for the Nexus 7 joined into the mix, and now, finally, an update has also been pushed out for the HSPA+ Galaxy Nexus. The update isn't huge, and brings with it some minor changes and fixes.

The update brings with it several small fixes that are relatively minor in nature. Perhaps the most notorious change is that of adding the month of December back to the people app, something they forgot to include the first time around. Also fixed are some issues with Bluetooth and wireless Internet connectivity.

While it is a minor update, users are reporting massive speed improvements on their Nexus 7 devices over at Android Community. Presumably, those using one of the other Nexus devices will also see speed improvements. One user also reports that screen rotation seems faster, and that audio "choppiness" experienced when streaming music via Bluetooth has been reduced substantially.

The easiest way to get the update, obviously, is to wait for the over-the-air notification to arrive. If you're feeling impatient, however, you can download the updates via the links below, or, perhaps a bit easier, you can manually check for updates via Settings. Have you updated your Nexus device? Let us know what you think in the comments!
