The original Samsung Galaxy Tab was meant to be an iPad killer, but unfortunately, it must have gotten its identity and purpose mixed up along the way because it was nowhere near such status after arriving on the market. Well, considering the larger Galaxy Tab 10.1 has already been released, surely there is quite a number of original Galaxy Tab owners who have made the upgrade switch. For those who have remained blindly loyal, here’s some good news – your Sprint Galaxy Tab will be receiving the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update very soon, where it will be known as build number EF17, sporting HD Bluetooth support as well.
Touted to arrive this coming July 5th, the update will be made available via Google OTA (Over The Air). This update will be spread out across a 4-day period for those who are eligible Sprint customers, based on your status with the Google servers. We would have liked to see a direct download link as well too, but beggars can’t be choosers, no?
