Verizon Jelly Bean update on DROID RAZR HD and MAXX HD being pushed out now

We learned late last week that Jelly Bean would begin rolling out to the DROID RAZR HD and MAXX HD ‘in phases’ during this week. Now, it appears that Verizon has opened up the gates and all versions should be getting the update at this time. Look for that update notification and, as always, take a look in your About Phone options to see if you can grab it manually. The update will of course bring Google Now and the improvements to notifications. Additionally, Verizon has purportedly improved voice and data connectivity as well as made ‘improvements’ to the stock calendar. Anyone with the update that can provide specifics?

Thanks, Tom!
