Samsung-Galaxy-Tab-550x840
Last Updated: November 23rd, 2011

Update: This update is rolling out now, and is expected to hit all customers within four days.

If a leaked internal document obtained by SprintFeed is to be believed, then owners of the OG Galaxy Tab on Sprint should finally join the Gingerbread club on July 5th. This update will also bring added support for HD Bluetooth to the seven-inch tablet, on top of the added benefits and goodies of Gingerbread.

This timeline seems to be about right, as Samsung just released the source code for the Galaxy Tab SPH-P100 Gingerbread kernel. This means that, aside from receiving a much-needed bump up to Gingerbread, you should also see some custom kernel action popup shortly after.

You can grab the source code by heading over to the Samsung Open Source Developers Center and downloading the file labeled "SPH-P100_OpenSouce_GB_Update.zip."

    It's about time. I can't afford the higher-end tablets right now, so Gingerbread could potentially make the experience at least a little better for now.

    I take back all the bad things I've said about Sprint :)
    Maybe now I'll finally be able to use GTalk with video. And the new Skype version. And maybe even Huddle from Google+?

      Ha. I wasn't even thinking about that. That's something else to cross our fingers for.

    What is HD bluetooth? A2DP=/=HD... HD is not even defined.

      I'm pretty sure it's HID (Hardware Interface Device) Bluetooth, which would mean support for input devices. Hopefully that means we can pair a wiimote to it now!

    I purchased mine on eBay and am using as WiFi only. How will I update mine with update since mine isn't active on the Sprint network. Thanks for your help.

    Question, Can this update be done on non-Sprint Tab's?
