As it is always the case in the world of technology, early adopters of most devices and brands are usually among the first to start complaining about things. This is particularly true when it comes to updates to their investments. However, most of these complaints are well founded due to them being about things that end up resulting in poor performance and overall bugginess. A very specific case for this is the Galaxy Tab 10.1v, which is the European version of the acclaimed Galaxy Tab, running under Vodaphone. As it is customary with updates, carrier and manufacturer pointed fingers at each other when people complained about not getting updates to take the tab from 3.0.1 to anything that wasn’t remotely as buggy as that. Looks like Samsung got tired of the little dance with the carriers, so they announced via their Tweeter account that the 10.1v would get the update and it was up to Vodaphone to say when they would roll out. XDA member fanSte posted about it in a thread and has posted screenshots of the Tweets as well.
As an early adopter of Honeycomb myself (my Asus came loaded with 3.0.1), I cannot understand why these customers were left with such buggy tabs. I do understand that networks have their own sets of restrictions when it comes to OTAs and that their networks may not be able to handle a massive push of updates, but this update was badly needed. So, while I don’t own a Galaxy tab, I thank you (Samsung and Voda) on the owner’s behalf.
e ng Galaxy Tab 10.1v is deliverd with 3.01 and there will be an upgrade to Android 3.1 Honeycomb.
