Original Samsung Galaxy Tab from Verizon gets Gingerbread update
Other new features coming with the OTA update are a download manager app, the ability to use the front-facing camera to record video, more accurate portrait and landscape re-sizing of widgets, support for Verizon's pre-paid service, and perhaps most importantly the update brings some security patches from Google.

I don't see why Samsung doesn't update it to Honeycomb.

This damn thing is way too small to be running Honeycomb, it really is suited for Froyo/GB because of its size. I'm curious to see if they jacked up the resolution or not because I ran an unoffcial Gingerbread build on my VZW tab and the resolution was higher and it realllllly screwed up everything. It needs to keep it's stock resolution. I just gotta find a way to get mine back to bone stock because I forgot how to, and the XDA forum for the OG Galaxy Tab is very cluttered and unorganized.
