    Default VZW site says software update-coming soon

    Is this old news? I tried looking at the source code and it says 2013. Here's the link: http://m-support.verizonwireless.com/system_update/galaxy nexus.HTML

    Hopefully this means we are getting 4.2+

    Sorry, but that's the previous JB update, I believe.

    Bummer. You'd think they would at least update the site show JB 4.1.1 available instead of coming soon.

    I gave up on waiting for updates from Verizon... just a waste of time when everyone and their mother is getting the update... I just decided instead of waiting take the risk of rooting my phone and I have to say I'm really enjoying 4.2.1.

    with this I basically got rid of some apps I needed for certain things like flashlight and such. 4.2.1 has that built in.. or maybe it's just the rom that has that feature

    I just found out that Google will no longer support CDMA versions of its operating system due to Verizon's policies.

    Sorry did not read the link but...
    does this mean all Google android based phones on VZW will no longer be supported by regular updates? that would really blow.

    That article you linked to is over a year old and isn't entirely relevant anymore. Since that time Google has resumed hosting factory images and binaries and pushed the Jelly Bean (4.1.1) update for the Verizon Nexus. They are still supporting it. Whether Verizon is still supporting it or not is a mystery, but that's nothing new. No one ever seems to know what Verizon is doing, including Verizon.

    Hmmm there seems to be a difference in opinion about the "coming soon".
