Galaxy Tab 10.1v Getting Official Updates (Finally)
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.

Google announced today that it will be bringing ads to the Play Store, and while that will surely annoy the majority of us, it isn't the only thing that sucks about the Play Store. From the lack of clear communication with developers to ridiculous restrictions, there are a handful of very annoying things about Google's approach. Let us know what bugs you the most about the Play Store.
Smartwatches still have a lot of growing up to do. Not too long ago the latest Canalys figures revealed a rather disappointing outcome for 2014, something we covered with the ultimate conclusion that, once again, smartwatches had no year. The direction of smartwatches is unclear to even the biggest OEMs, and with every new option there seems to be polarizing dissonances from what people and OEMs want and what they both think they want. We've documented many of the reasons as to...
