Owners of the original 7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab sold by Sprint will be getting a major upgrade to Gingerbread beginning July 5. The update will be pushed out over-the-air beginning July 5, or a manual check can be forced to begin the update process. While some OTA updates roll out over a long period, the Sprint information indicates that all Tab owners will get it over a 4-day window.
I am still quite happy with my Sprint Galaxy Tab and I am looking forward to the Gingerbread update. The HTC Flyer I have been testing runs Gingerbread and it is a nice improvement over the Froyo version currently running on the Galaxy Tab. This Tab is the most heavily used gadget I own, which is saying a lot. The HTC EVO 4G smartphone I owned before trading it in on the Nexus S 4G had received an update to Gingerbread and the performance improvement was great. I am hoping for a similar experience with the Galaxy Tab.
