It appears that the Android 4.1 update has been postponed by Vodafone Australia due to a snafu in connection to emergency calling.

Since the Jelly Bean Android 4.1 OS is not compliant with the emergency phone call standards of Australia, the release of the Android 4.1 update has been postponed by the Australian mobile service provider. This first Android 4.1 update for Android-powered devices was set to be released Samsung Nexus S.

A blog post by the Vodafone Australia revealed that the update for the latest version of the Android OS will be postponed although it cannot offer any other details in connection to the delay. The mobile service provider also indicated that if there are any changes in the Android 4.1 update, it will inform its customers through the blog.

The release of software updates for smartphones are often delayed and is not limited to the Android OS. Evaluations made by mobile service providers as well the process of approval are normally the reason for such delays. The approval process is normally quite thorough even if it only involves software updates.

The issue on emergency calls, which has affected the release of the Android 4.1 update, is normally affected by software updates.

The Samsung Nexus S was supposed to be the first device to receive the Android 4.1 update prior to announcement of the delay although Vodafone Australia customers are asked to check the blog from time-to-time for any changes on the release schedule of the software update.
