    More or less, should be about 2 months based on all the prior OTAs.

    since Verizon has unofficially abandoned the Galaxy Nexus, I'd say the 4.2 OTA update will take more than the usual 3 months.... perhaps as early as Groundhog Day?

    I say "abandoned" because all 3 Verizon Wireless coporate owned/operated stores in my area have removed the Galaxy Nexus from the store displays.
    Of course the neutered new 16GB version is still available at VerizonWireless.com and third-party sellers.

    I just unlocked and rooted my Gnex with Wugfresh's Nexus root toolkit...it is ridiculously easy...so easy in fact you'll be like "what the hell was I waiting for" and since AOSP just got 4.2 today I can get the goodness as soon as a ROM is cooked...and if I feel like getting the OTA the Toolkit can un-root and re-lock ur phone...just a suggestion...

    If bugless beast comes out with 4.2 first I might have to switch back to that untill AOKP comes out with one

    hahaha....classic

    on a semi relted note....i fear slightly for the VZW nexus...because google admitted it was a huge flop/mistake of a phone and that they were a PITA to deal with. hopefully Google/vzw will still support it for as long as the GSM version. but who knows really....and who cares really...as anyone that REALLY cares about OTA's would just Root and FLASH a ROM anyway.

    It is supported. It will receive every OTA it is supposed to for at least another year, albeit roughly 2 months or so after the GSM ones do, give or take. Anyone who posts to say anything different is trolling.

    Exactly.

    It may be less time since this isn't a huge upgrade, but I would still say around New Years is when we'll see the update.

    Like I said when last update came out, I won't be holding my breath waiting for it. Maybe by the time it comes out I won't be with Verizon anymore. :banghead:

    People were complaing that the toro didn't get 4.1.2 24 hours after it came out, I can't wait for people to complain about this.

    Reading people's experiences in the Nexus 7 4.2 update experience thread, I'm not sure I want it to come quickly. I wouldn't mind waiting for a better 4.2.x that resolves some of people's frustrations.
    I know this is really weenie, but I also hate the new clock.

    As far as design, or lack there of, I completely agree with you regarding the clock. The features are awesome, though. I love swiping left to snooze or right to disable alarms. I travel for business and in general it's very cool to have the times of different cities around the world (math can be confusing...). I haven't used them yet but I'm sure I'll find a time when the timer and/or stop watch features come in handy. I expect devs will integrate their clock widgets with the stock 4.2 functions so the stock design shouldn't matter shortly.

    Verizon always takes a long time to push out OTA updates.
    My solution? Don't visit AndroidCentral and similar sites
    for a while. If you don't know an update is on the horizon,
    you won't curse Verizon for taking so long.

    4.2 is a nightmare on the Nexus 7.00 tab. Many apps need to be fixed, eg, Firefox, Facebook, Android Pro Widgets, on and on.

    well I flashed to 4.2 and I like the lock-screen tiles...u can get to the camera directly from the lock screen, even while using, pattern lock or face unlock...take pictures and hit back and the phone is still locked...u can also add additional tiles to access from the lock screen...text messaging, calender, etc.... the one problem I did encounter (and I expected this) some of my apps don't work because they probably need to be updated to be compatible with 4.2 but if u send them an email the app developers usually get back to u pretty quick and within days an update is out....that is probably the only drawback to getting the latest version of android first...so a 2 month wait with VZW is sort of a blessing, ur almost guaranteed to have all ur favorite apps updated and compatible with 4.2...

    I agree with others that this might not take Verizon 2 months since it is not near as big of update as 4.0 was to 4.1.

    The program they have going with Verizon is a flop, not the phone
