Sprint's Galaxy Tab getting the Gingerbreads on July 5th
The 7" Samsung Galaxy Tab, which was the first brand-name Android tablet last year, is still running Android 2.2 Froyo in many of its carrier reincarnations, but that's about to change very soon, as Sprint's version will be getting Android 2.3 Gingerbread on July 5th.

The EF17 update will start rolling out to Sprint's Samsung Galaxy Tab owners over the air, in the course of four days, and won't require hooking the tablet up to Samsung Kies. The update has already been made available in Taiwan, where new features like Sketch Memo have been introduces, and bug fixes applied.

As for Android Honeycomb, it seems that Google has already prepped the 7" version, judging from the appearance of tablets like the Huawei MediaPad 7-incher with Android 3.2, but it's pretty doubtful that Honeycomb will grace the shores of the Samsung Galaxy Tab one day. Even if it does, by that time everyone might have moved on to Android Ice Cream Sandwich, so there are always the custom ROM projects, if you feel pressed.
