Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) to arrive in Q1 2011 on Samsung Galaxy Tab

According to a tweet released by SamFirmware a few days ago, it seems that Samsung Galaxy Tab will receive the Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) update at the end of Q1 (1st quarter) 2011. We are not sure if this is true or not but according to them this news is “based on FW and insider news”.

We all know that Android 2.3 is already getting tested on different devices such as the new PlayStation Phone and Google accidentally released a video showing how the new android OS works. And if we take into account the fact that carriers still have to update their mobile devices to Android 2.2, it makes sense to wait a bit until everyone is on the same OS.

I am sure that Android 2.3 will arrive soon also based also on the fact that Google’s CEO and Chairman of the Board, Eric Schmidt, confirmed at the Web 2.0 Summit that Gingerbread will be launched “in the next few weeks”.

We attached bellow a few videos from Google and from the leaked PSPhone which gives you an insight on how the new update performs/looks like. Do you think there will a lot of improvements compared to 2.2? Will this update be fully optimised to work on the Samsung Galaxy Tab? We will have to wait and see.

    Any update on when on when Gingerbread is being released? Is it still on for Q1 2011? Will it be released in the UK at the same time?

    Thanks,

    Philip

      I agree, time is up.
      I’m thoroughly disappointed by the release of a rumor that doesn’t deliver. We’re 1/3 of the way through Q2 now and all searches for Galaxy Tab 2.3 upgrade are sourced from this post. I haven’t been able to find anything that Samsung has announced anywhere online.

      IMHO the credibility of posts here has by now dropped down a few pegs and any future announcements will be met with skepticism.

There should NEVER be a product like this that doesn’t Guaranty as part of our Extreamly High Purchace Price, LIFETIME UPDATES to the Latest and best O.S. the device will handle, as soon as the new O.S. is avaliable. There should NEVER be a wait for the O.S. as soon as the Developers are done with testing, it should be released.
