Gingerbread update for the original Samsung Galaxy Tab begins to roll out in the UK
Earlier in the month, we saw the official announcement regarding the highly anticipated Android 2.3 Gingerbread software update for the Sprint’s Samsung Galaxy Tab, but now it appears to be finally making its way overseas.

Specifically, Samsung Galaxy Tab owners in the UK are in for the special tasty treat seeing that the long time update is finally being rolled out – albeit, it’s expected to arrive first for unlocked devices. But for those sporting carrier versions, we’d suspect seeing the update arriving some time in the future. Sadly, this isn’t your typical update process since it’s not an over-the-air one, but rather, it requires the use of Samsung’s Kies desktop software to download and install.

Although it’s not up to spec with its much newer sibling, which so happens to be the Honeycomb flavored Galaxy Tab 10.1, Gingerbread will nonetheless suffice for now in the short term – but who knows how long they'll be able to contain their jealousy for the tablet-optimized platform.
