If anyone has been deferring on their purchase of the Samsung Galaxy Tab for fear of inadequate OS support when future Android updates come in, well here it is. Samsung India has confirmed the 7 inch tablet will support not only the forthcoming Android 2.3 tentatively called Gingerbread, but it will also receive upgrades to Android 3.0 codenamed Honeycomb.
Google had earlier warned manufacturers against using the Android 2.2 Froyo, citing the particular version was not prepared for use in a tablet like device, something that the future Android versions, namely Gingerbread and Honeycomb will deal adequately. And now, with the assurance coming from Samsung India, none should harbor the least doubt of the Galaxy Tab’s ability to accept the future Android version that promises to make tablet operation even more of a pleasure.
There is no word though either from Google or Samsung as to when one can expect the next Android versions to hit markets.
With a keen interest in tech, I make it a point to keep myself updated on the latest developments in the world of technology and gadgets. That includes smartphones or tablet devices but stretches to even AI and self-driven automobiles as well, the latter being my latest fad. Besides writing, I like watching videos, reading, listening to music, or experimenting with different recipes. Motion picture is another aspect that interests me a lot and maybe I’ll make a film sometime in the future.
