Sprint has started rolling out the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update for Samsung’s first ever tablet the Galaxy Tab 7.
Even though the Galaxy Tab 7 was not a tablet in the true sense, Sammy still made sure to release the device under every network in the U.S. The Galaxy Tab 7 was dubbed by many as an enlarged version of the Samsung Galaxy S, and is powered by a 1GHz Cortex-A8 processor, and packs 512MB of RAM.
The new software release from Sprint (EF17) will bump the Android version to 2.3 Gingerbread and will also fix the HID Bluetooth bug. Along with this, Tab owners should also expect some improvement in the performance and battery life of the device.
The update is already available for download, and the Tab can be updated using the OTA (Over-The-Air) method.
To download the update, Tab owners should head over to Settings-> About My Galaxy Tab-> System Updates, and select the Update Firmware option. The update will then be automatically downloaded and installed.
Sprint aims to complete the Gingerbread update roll-out within the next 4 days.
