Verizon's Samsung Galaxy Tab receives an update, but it's not Android 3.0 Honeycomb
For the majority of people who own non-Honeycomb powered Android tablets, the only thing on their minds is the eventual hope of possibly seeing an update to truly uncover the power of their tablets.

Although some Verizon Samsung Galaxy Tab owners might be filled with anticipation today, especially if they happen to see a perky notification pop up about an update, they might be disappointed to figure out that it’s not for Honeycomb. Starting today, Verizon has started rolling out an over-the-air-process for the Samsung Galaxy Tab’s EC02 update, but it might take a few days for it to completely hit everyone. Some of the goodies included with this software update include:

  • improved browser performance and speed
  • searching for Wi-Fi hotspots no longer drains battery
  • hyperlinks can now be accessed directly in emails
  • Word 2000 and Word 2003 documents can now be attached to emails
  • multiple name cards can now be sent using the Select All feature
  • 5 MB video attachments can now be opened from email messages
  • changes to font size in the email client don’t go away when replying to messages anymore
  • time zone calendar settings have been fixed, calendar events are now accurate regardless of your time zone
  • Adobe Flash has been updated

Sure it isn’t Android 3.0 Honeycomb, but we’re sure that there are some owners out there who will be more than jubilant to know that Samsung is still committed to the device.
