Why is there a "Check Now" button under system updates if we still have to wait for the updates to be pushed to us?

Perhaps it's there b/c if you get a new device (say it's running 4.0.2) after the roll out you'll be able to simply force it?

I read on another forum that if for some reason you don't get the update when its pushing, you can get it afterwards via the button

Google added the functionality in Android, but the carriers realize it doesn't work effectively in a non-sandbox environment maybe?

It's there to tease us with the dream that an update is out there

It's part of the google exercise program to give you a really strong index figure while glaring at your phone.
