Verizon's Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 update adds the ability to install apps on a memory card, Ethernet connection support and more

Verizon is about to launch an update for the year and a half-old Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1. The new software comes with several important improvements, including the ability to store apps on a memory card. We wonder why it took so long for Samsung and Verizon Wireless to launch this capability; like they didn’t plan to sell a single unit in the first place.

Anyway, the software also adds support for Ethernet connection though you’ll need an adapter to be able to benefit from a faster, wired network. This part is sold separately and you should definitely get one if you often find yourself attending different kind of tech events where everyone and their mama are jumping on the Wi-Fi network which more often than not can’t handle the number of requests facing at any given moment.

In addition, Verizon also made sure its Messages app is now pre-installed but you are free to ignore its existence completely. Simply keep using the app you’ve been using before and you’re good to go.

Yup, you should update the second your Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 informs you that a new software is waiting for download. ;)

    What? Tab 2 couldn’t install apps on an SD card before? That’s stupid…

    Just found out that my newly purchased note didn’t install apps to sd, so that’s welcome news
