Anonymous, 17 Jul 2011Why galaxy tab is not getting any updates? I'm really thinking of changing it.
No updates for the Galaxy Tab Wifi (P1010) version.
I guess thats becuase the actual hardware is different and slower than the Galaxy Tab (P1000) version. If the sales people told me that I wouldn't of brought the Wifi version. Yes, I dod notice some apps it runs slower!! and now no updates either.

Facetime is not only the last one of those video caalling programs, it is also the worst, because you can use it only with mac. For example Fring can do it for much longer than iPhone with Facetime and it can be used between all platforms, so i can call any friend who has fring, doesnt matter, if its on android or symbian. iPhones Facetime only works between iPhone, iPad and Mac.
Anonymous, 17 Jul 2011Why galaxy tab is not getting any updates? I'm really thinking of changing it.Check with samsung kies, my Galaxy TAB is already at 2.3.3, hopefully yours will be too...
I cant even update to 2.3.3
No choice but to continue using due to contract. After over, no more Samsung. KIES is rubbish.
I'm in Portugal (Europe) and by now i still with the 2.2, no update to 2.3.
I ask, this is really come?
I have a phone free of operators...
I'm waiting... see to believe
nick, 17 Jul 2011samsung are now well on the ball for updates!
People always say HTC are good with updates ... moreNot so fast, The problem with none Nexus Android phones are updates. I got my 2.3.3 update when it came out about 2 months ago on my Nexus one then shortly after I got the 2.3.4. Samsung has always been one of THE worst when it comes to updates.
The best Android phones are the Nexus line. The rest are left behind in the dust as far as updates.
OMG...what nitwits really think ios was first with video-calling when in reality they were the last on the scene. Nokia phones (and probably others too) had this feature long before Apple even thought of getting into the phone business. Most of the world had this capability at least 5 years ago, and on 3G not merely wi-fi. Wake up people!
Anonymous, 17 Jul 2011Actally, vodafone australia is still stuck with 2.2 and vodafone is so bad with communicating ... moreHmm, I was basing Vodafone's reputation from their other phones which have received Gingerbread updates. I'm surprised that the Galaxy S is still trapped on 2.2 with Vodafone!
Jimmy, 17 Jul 2011Unfortunately this is not true. Due to Vodafone Australia's incompetence this advertised 2.2.3... moreWell, I guess that every carrier here are crap... I think every phone maker should sue every carrier here.
I only thought Vodafone was decent with updates after seeing some of my friends getting updates for some of their other phones (eg: Desire HD).
Telstra's network, while really good, can't even offer phones with minimal branding. I mean, how much bloatware do they put in their phones and how long does it take for them to release updates? Remember how long it actually took them to bring the 2.2 update for the Galaxy S?
I have to say you should really appreciate samsung bc these days even phones which are 6 months old are considered dead (except apple which is ok bc they SUCK!) but the samsung never forgot about Galaxy S (not the Tab thoe). Nice job Samy!
JONNY, 17 Jul 2011In Latvia we are still stuck on 2.21 ,and i dont think gingerbread will be avaible in here :( ... moreIts up to you and as many folk as you can get to force your operator to release the update..Its a damn nuisance because the normal folk in the street cant understand why an update is not their,,sometimes is because updates are rolled out country by country but the biggest letdown is operators ..
Seems like some ignorant person wrote the above article. Front facing camera for video calling through network has been working since the beginning with android 2.1 and kept on working on froyo 2.2 and until now gingerbread 2.3.3 without any glitches. I've been using it.
Anonymous, 17 Jul 2011apple makes start and everyone sheepingly follow. where is innovation. First android tab now f... moreno no no, are you just born yesterday? facetime is not that innovative.. but i gotta say, apple didn't create it, but they make it seems fun. more fun then how it was..
look kid, that's how it works.. if i see a man doing great with his works, i'm gonna want to know how he did it.. that's what the other company did, and guess what, apple did it too, surprise?
stayheart, 17 Jul 2011I've recently bought galaxy s, i'm new user of android and i can say that android is superb am... more"my galaxy s is running 2.2 version but when i try to update using samsung accounts it says there is no update available."
I had the same problem updating over-the-air, but then I download the laptop/desktop-version of KIES to my PC. Then I updated my Galaxy S to Gingerbread v2.3.3 through the cable instead.
I have done this update 1 month ago. I found the update here: http://www.phonesarchive.com/tutorials/update-samsung-galaxy-s-i9000-to-android-gingerbread-234.html
