The IFA event in Berlin is still some way off (starts on Sept 6), though that hasn’t stopped the rumor mongers from spreading a few good stories around. The latest claim Samsung is all set to launch its Galaxy Tab 3 device at the European tech event. No specific details are available as yet, and it’s not clear if Samsung would launch both the 7 and 10.1 inch versions of Galaxy Tab 3 simultaneously. Meanwhile, Samsung is reported to have stopped providing any updates for its first generation Galaxy Tabs, though the Galaxy Tab 2 will be provided with the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update. However, that will be the last official update for the second gen Galaxy Tab device.
In another related development, which interestingly can also be classified as another rumor, Samsung is said to have delayed the Jelly Bean update for Galaxy Tab 7.7. The update is reported to have been pushed back until May/June, though no specific dates are available as yet.
