One of the highlights of owning an official Google Nexus device is the fact that you will be on the receiving end of Android updates a lot faster than Android owners who might be locked to a carrier, or Android owners of non-Nexus devices. That being said, it looks like it might be time for the Nexus S to retire as according to Google, it looks like both the Nexus S handset and the Motorola Xoom tablet will not be receiving Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. Instead owners of either device will be updated to Android 4.1.2 at most. We’re not sure if this will change in the future but for now, it looks like that is the case. However given the rather active Android community with tons of tutorials out there, we’re sure that Nexus S owners and Motorola Xoom owners will be able to find some custom ROM based on Android 4.2 for their devices. Even if they don’t, Android 4.1.2 is still pretty decent.
