Samsung Galaxy Tab: Android Gingerbread, Honeycomb – Release Updates

We have some good news for those of you who are planning to pick up a Samsung Galaxy Tab this month, as we are hearing reports that the device will definitely get future updates to both Android OS Gingerbread and Honeycomb.

That is according to this report from Phandroid, who have taken their information from an unnamed Samsung representative who has stated that the Galaxy Tab will receive both updates as soon as they come to market.

Unfortunately, the rep didn’t give an exact release period for when the updates will be available, but Phandroid also add that Android OS Gingerbread, now thought to be OS version 2.3 will be out before Christmas. As for the Honeycomb update, fresh details on it are due to come during the early part of 2011 – will it now be known as Android 3.0?

Hopefully Samsung get their act together and release Gingerbread for the Samsung Galaxy Tab as soon as possible, although it’s slightly worrying to think that the majority of Galaxy S owners are yet to receive the Android 2.2 Froyo update.

Are you planning to get a Galaxy Tab?

If Samsung dont up grade their OS to 2.3 at least, then i have to agree ill avoid their products also. Its a lot of money to spend only to find out they dont take their own devices seriiously !

I am waiting for official confirmation from Samsung somewhere if the Galaxy Tab will be getting update to Gingerbread and Honeycomb.
Once there’s such confirmation, I certainly will get one, otherwise I will buy IPAD (based on experience by using iPhone, can always update the firmware to the latest).
