Remember the original Galaxy Tab? It was perhaps the first high profile tablet with a 7 inch display and was indeed a very capable piece of hardware . However, one major grouse of the Galaxy Tab was that it was struck with Android 2.2 Froyo, this when the world has moved onto Android 4.0 ICS. However, the good news on this front is that if you are still holding on to the original Samsung Galaxy Tab from U.S. Cellular in your possession, you can upgrade to Android 2.3 Gingerbread by downloading it directly from the official Samsung website.
However, in spite of the upgrade to Android 2.3 Gingerbread, one shouldn’t be expecting any changes to the tablet’s user interface, i.e. the interface will not look like the net generation Galaxy Tabs. But then, there are other solid reason to go for the update to the Gingerbread though. Like, an enhanced optimization of resources, a smooth, and better looking new user interface along with enhanced back up for a lot of apps that you download. However you should have a computer to kick off the upgradation process as there is no way it can be done over the air neither it can be done by recovering your system.
