HTC One S Jelly Bean update rolling out now

HTC One S Jelly Bean update rolling out nowIt’s been a long wait for HTC One S owners keen to get their hands on delicious Jelly Bean (Android 4.1).

Android’s latest and greatest was originally unveiled back in June, and while it was confirmed the following month, it’s only now, six months later, that HTC One S Jelly Bean is being served.

That’s the good word according to, well, numerous cyberweb-based sources and sites, with the apparent consensus being that it’s European HTC One S owners seeing Jelly Bean first.

Jelly Bean represents a fairly decent leap from Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0), with a bulging sack of new features.

HTC One S owners can look forward to improved notifications, magic widgets, a smarter keyboard, Android Beam, and Google Now. There’s also improved smoothness overall thanks to Google’s Project Butter. For more Jelly Bean goodness, head over to Everything you need to know about Jelly Bean.

Anyone out there with an HTC One S? Any sign of Jelly Bean?

It's a beautiful phone, the nicest of 2012, IMO. It's just such a shame it had a relatively crap display and limited internal memory. A perfect example of HTC's current lack of knowledge as to what the consumer wants.

Still, nice to see it stay updated. Project Butter might help reduce the typical Sense lag.

I'll assume you misread.

No, the One X doesn't have a crap display, the One S on the other hand...erm...does.
