Last month we found out that Samsung was supposed to start updating its Galaxy Tab line of tablets with Android 4.0 this month and already there are signs that the process has started. The Galaxy Tab 7.7 GT-P6800 update has been released on Samsung Kies and you can download the new firmware from SamFirmware.com as well.
Samsung previously said that during August and July it would take care of all Android 4.0 updates for its slates. Know that the Galaxy Tab 7.7 gets Android 4.0.4 with a Build date of June 21th, PDA: P6800XXLQ1, CSC: P6800OXALQ1 and MODEM: P6800XXLPW. Let’s see what other models are scheduled to receive this nifty update. We have the Samsung Galaxy Tab Plus 7.0 WiFi, the GT-P6200 Galaxy Tab Plus 7.0 WiFi + 3G, the Galaxy Tab 7.7 WiFi and 3G, the Tab 8.9 WiFi and 3G versions and the Tab 10.1 WiFi and 3G.
As usual I’m pretty angry that Sammy decided to make us all wait, while the capitalized on the Galaxy Tab 2 models, whose only selling points were Android 4.0 ICS. Now that they got a bit of profit out of those models it’s time to feed the unlucky owners of last year Tabs with updates… That’s capitalism, folks! You can get the firmware here.
