I am late in posting this tid bit, but I have been pretty sick today and sleeping. Anyway at about 3:30am this morning Verizon pushed out a firmware update for customers with the original Galaxy tab 7 bumping them from 2.2.0 to 2.3.5. Gingerbread baby! I am in beaumont Tx, the update took about 10min and went off without any problems. performance across the board has definitly been improved and I am hopefull that this may mean they might try and update us to honycomb so we don't feal too lost when everyone else with slitely better gear gets bumped to android 4.0 Anyway, no one else was reporting this and I wanted to get the word out!
