Google have announced that the Android Jelly Bean update has begun rolling out for the Google Nexus S. Speficially, those on O2, T-Mobile and Vodafone should see the update available very soon !
The Google Nexus S launched at the end of 2010 when it was the first device to run Android Gingerbread , but that hasn't stopped the smartphone getting upgraded to the latest version of Android. That's because Google always promise that their smartphones will be supported by the next two versions of Android, which in this case meant Ice Cream Sandwich and now Android Jelly Bean.
The upgrade to Android Jelly Bean (4.1) brings a number of improvements including support for the voice-assistant software "Google Now", improved home-screen widget management, support for actions in the notification bar and an overall smoother and more responsive experience.

The Google Nexus S is a little dated now, but you should be able to pick it up for a decent price which makes it pretty appealing. The smartphone has a 4 inch AMOLED touch-screen, 1GHz processor, 16GB of on-board memory and a 5 mega-pixel camera.
