Sprint variant of Samsung Galaxy Tab Gingerbread update comes July 5


The original Samsung Galaxy Tab is not really successful. At all. In fact, it's been mistaken for an iPad before, because Samsung simply didn't do enough to differentiate it for the non-nerdy crowd. And when the Tab hasn't been mistaken for a Pad, the latter has been chosen over the former due to the size difference they have and price-point they share.

That's not likely to change, but Samsung's ready to try to fix a little bit of the pain by adding Gingerbread to the original Galaxy Tab. It's no Honeycomb, but it promises to be a bit faster than the Froyo the device had been munching on. In addition, you can expect HID Bluetooth support so you can use a nice Bluetooth keyboard while you're on the go. 

To be honest, I don't know how much more coverage will come from this addition. It seems like everybody went for other tablets when Honeycomb came out, or maybe that when the Galaxy Tab came out, people started to go away from tablets completely. 

If you do own a Galaxy Tab, the update's headed your way on July 5.

    If you prefer, as I do, to exist in a resolutely non-IOS Android ecosystem, you would be happy with the Tab, as it supports way more apps natively than Honeycomb … and it’s still a very comfortable screen size.
