Update for Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1 put on ice
The Android 3.2 Honeycomb update for the Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1 has been put on hold by the Korean based manufacturer. Users of the tablet had been reporting problems after the update started to get pushed through, including broken Wi-Fi connections. In a response, Samsung said that it is aware of the situation and is working on a resolution. In fact, the Korean based firm makes it sound as though a response will be coming shortly. For now, Samsung has decided to pull the update with the hope that it will get things right next time.

This isn't the first time that Samsung had to halt an update to the tablet in the middle of disseminating it. You might remember back in August, Samsung pushed out a TouchWiz update for owners of the device. This update had to be put on hold right in the middle of sending it out due to some bugs that had played havoc with the tablet. Hopefully the earlier experience allows Samsung to quickly find the problem and resume the update for owners of the Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1.

Samsung - unlike Apple - does not release buggy updates which do not necessarily make existing issues better, and create new bugs as well.

For anyone that cares there is a working 3.2 ROM out there at the moment, i've been running it for a couple days now with zero issues. Check out the GT10.1 XDA forums for more information.
