Mobilicity getting Samsung Galaxy Nexus on February 6th

For those of you out there who own either one of Sprint’s Nexus devices, it may be time for you to rejoice. Rumor has it, that Samsung is readying Jelly Bean (Android 4.1) updates to go out this week to the Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S. The folks over at Android Central had a reliable source drop the news to them about a potentially imminent release of the newest version of Android. Apparently, build FH05 will be for the Galaxy Nexus, and JRO03R for the Nexus S.

Here’s the e-mail obtained by the site that’s thought to be hitting people’s inboxes:
