While there has been no official announcement from Samsung, various sources are now reporting that the Gingerbread update for the original Galaxy Tab has begun rolling out in the UK. Announced back in May, the update gives the tab the latest version of Android available for smaller screen devices.
As of yet the update has not been made official so don’t be too surprised if it does not yet show as available on your device. It’s also worth noting that the update must be applied via the Samsung Kies software, so you won’t be able to find it by searching for a Firmware Over The Air update on your device. As always we recommend doing a backup of any important files before updating.
