The wait is over – if you happen to own a Samsung Galaxy Tab from Sprint, then you will be able to take advantage of what Android 2.3 Gingerbread is able to offer – once you download the software update, of course. This Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS software update from Sprint will cater only for the SPH-p100 Samsung Galaxy Tab, and will not leave out a single software improvement. For those who are on software version EB28, just be patient and you ought to see a network notification pinging you for the EF17 software update. All updates will be done OTA (Over The Air), so it might take several minutes before the process is complete.
Among the benefits of the Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS software update (EF17) for the Galaxy Tab would be having its VPN (Virtual Private Network) fixed, throwing in Bluetooth HID support, and better power management capability among others.
Anyone out there already gone ahead with the update? How does it feel to have a new version of the Android operating system running? It is as though your Galaxy Tab just got a new shot in the arm, no? Now to wait for Honeycomb…
