Vodafone have just tweeted to let everyone know that the Android 2.3.6 update for the original Samsung Galaxy Tab (7-inch) has passed carrier testing and will be pushed out to users ‘soon’. This update might be last major update the Galaxy Tab receives, unless Samsung find they can fit Ice Cream Sandwich on it — something I doubt they’ll do. It’s more likely they’ll do what they’re doing with the Galaxy S and pull Android 4.0 features out of Ice Cream Sandwich and mash them in with 2.3.6.
The Android 2.3.6 update for the GALAXY Tab 7 has been granted technical acceptance. Roll-out will begin soon. bit.ly/Ac2Qig
