More interesting than that, however, is that the listing specifically says that the HSPA+¬†Galaxy Nexus¬†from the Play Store is “soon the first phone” running the new OS. While most major versions of Android are launched alongside flagship devices, this implies that 4.1 will not have it’s own new Nexus phone. This lends even more credence to the idea that Google will instead be launching a Nexus tablet at I/O along with Jelly Bean.

Just a few more days until we know more for sure. At this point, though, it’s hard to not get excited.
