Update: Updated information from Verizon actually pegs the update as pushing out in phases, beginning Tuesday March 19. Even better news!

Those of you rocking a Droid 4 might want to gather round at this point. Seems Verizon has approved a pretty special software update for the QWERTY slider that will bump it up to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and all the goodness that comes with it. 

The rollout hasn't actually got underway yet, nor do we know exactly when it will. But, support documentation over on the Verizon website confirms the bump to Jelly Bean so Droid 4 owners will soon be able to experience that buttery smoothness of Project Butter and of course, Google Now. 

Aside from bumping up to Android 4.1, the update package will also include some device specific improvements. These include improved voice and data connectivity, improvements to mobile hotspot connectivity, and the removal of the pre-loaded MOG and Sling applications. 

Droid 4 owners will naturally be excited by this, so be sure to head on down to the Droid 4 forums to share it with us all.
