The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 4G LTE for Verizon is getting an update, but before you go celebrating like it’s Christmas in the summer, it’s just a minor one. Still, the bug fixes and other tweaks should make the end user experience much more pleasant. The update will be available OTA, or over-the-air, and will fix 4G LTE connectivity issues. That’s good news, because why have a nice, capable LTE tablet like the Galaxy Tab 10.1 that has a fickle connection?
I know many users (myself included) were hoping this would be an update to Android 3.2 Honeycomb or even the recently released Touch Wiz UX that the Wi-Fi version received but it is neither. This update is a minor software update and nothing more. While I wish we were receiving an update to the stable 3.2 Honeycomb, I’m still happy that they are providing some fixes and hopefully users have a more stable connection following the update.
While I do agree that it’s fair for users to hope for more, a little patience goes a long way. But at any rate, keep your eyes peeled for the update as it’s expected to arrive soon. If you’re the impatient type, you can furiously check for the update manually until you develop carpal tunnel syndrome.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is, as its name suggests, a 10-inch Android 3.1 Honeycomb tablet with a 1GHz dual-core processor from NVIDIA. It has front and rear-facing cameras for stills and video recording and calling. It’s available in 16GB or 32GB models, and starts at $499.
