New Android 3.2 Honeycomb Update Available For Download For The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1
Samsung has officially confirmed that Galaxy Tab 10.1 owners will be greeted with a new Android 3.2 Honeycomb update in order to fix that the previous version has broken. The South Korea company has already pushed the Honeycomb 3.2 upgrade, however, the firmware messed up several features of the tablet on some units therefore a new update was a must and Samsung has dully delivered.
Many Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 owners have reported issues with the Bluetooth and WiFi after updating to Android 3.2 Honeycomb OS. The company has acknowledged the problems and the new firmware is now available for download over the air. Users should know that this is a gradual rollout meaning that it might take a few days or weeks until they will get the notification so don’t panic yet.
Users who do not like to wait can plug in their Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 units to a personal computer and hit the Keys software updater. The process might take a few minutes and like always you should do a back-up before starting the whole thing. If something goes wrong, then you can restore your tablet’s settings, apps, and data to the previous (and working) state.
The update also caused some problems with auto-rotation on some units, but like said, those days will be over as soon as you install the “correct” Android 3.2 Honeycomb version. Samsung has apologized for the troubles it caused to the users, while adding that it’s hopeful to overcome such situations in the future, though nobody can guarantee that it’s not going to happen again.
A bunch of Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 owners were wondering if someone actually tests these updates before they are officially pushed to the users. Sadly, it’s not a solitary case as many other devices have encountered problems after being upgraded including the iPhone 4S. Although the iOS 5.0.1 upgrade should have fixed the battery issues, this update has made it worse even for the people who didn’t experience any issues prior to installing the latest version.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 spec sheet includes a dual-core 1GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 CPU, 1GB RAM, 16GB / 32GB / 64GB built-in memory, 10.1-inch 1280 x 800 resolution touchscreen, 3-megapixel camera on the back with flash and a secondary camera in the front, HDMI out, and a 7,000mAh battery.
Let us know if you upgraded to the latest Android 3.2 Honeycomb version and if the problems are now gone.
