Will the original Samsung Galaxy Tab get Gingerbread?

Or will it be replaced by the new slimmer Gingerbread model?

I doubt it will get either. Most manufacturers tend to ditch support (in the form of software upgrades such as Android) after a newer model comes out. Take the example of my SGS2. The original SGS doesnt seem to be getting Gingerbread and if it does its well overdue!

Shuwaz, hasn't the SGS got 2.3? I thought it had...

OK, it must do then. Its just that last time My mate was round with his he said that he still hadnt got 2.3 from Samsung yet. He's quite tech-savvy so I assumed they hadnt released it yet.

I'm not sure if it's a Kies update or OTA or an Odin job, but it's available, I know that for sure. You can even get 2.3.4.

Oh and your mate probably just hasn't got it from his network yet, the networks seem to love delaying Android updates so then can put their bloatware crap all over them.

He bought it sim-free. Said he regulary checks the samsung site (via his registered account) for updates.
