Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1v Receives Android 3.2.1 Update at Vodafone Australia
A new Android update is rolling out for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1v tablet in Australia from Vodafone. Unfortunately, this update is only for Android 3.2.1 Honeycomb instead of the latest Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
Still, any update is still an update which will improve the performance and stability of the operating system as well as introduce new features. Among those that will be available for this update are an expanded Recent Apps listing and the ability to resize Home Screen widgets.
There is already connectivity support for USB accessories, which means that users will now be able to use input device such as USB-powered keyboards and pointing devices, joysticks, gamepads, as well as storage devices like thumb drives and external hard disk drives.
The Android update also includes support for FLAC audio file playback, and improves on Adobe Flash support in the web browser. Wi-Fi connectivity when the display is turned off is also enhanced. HTTP proxy support has likewise been added. For added stability and performance, several bug fixes and security fixes have also been introduced.
Vodafone cautions users to charge the battery fully before the update is downloaded and installed. For safety, users should also backup important files before the upgrade is performed. A Wi-Fi connection is also recommended for the download.
The update has a size of 140 MB and is sent over the air (OTA) through Google. It is also rolled out in stages, so some might receive it earlier than others.
