    Hi everyone, I just got a really old Galaxy Tab for $60 on eBay as a Kindle Replacement. I hate the weird Android on the Fires and I really can't afford to pay full price for the latest and greatest. I know the storage is expandable and I'll likely get a tiny 8gb card if I don't find one lying around.

    I am wondering if I can upgrade to a newer version of Android. I plan to just read books on it and maybe surf the web and use the Facebook app but I am studying web development and I might want to get under the hood at some point. Is this a feasible idea or will that be a RAM killer given the thing is probably 5 years old? Any advice will be helpful. Thanks in advance. [​IMG]

    The device is a Samsung Galaxy Tab Wifi SCH-I800 3G Tablet Verizon 7 inch specs as follows (as I said OLD)
    Operating System: Android 2.2.x Froyo
    Connectivity: Wi-Fi + 3G
    Storage Capacity: 2 GB
    Processor Speed: 1 GHz
    Memory RAM: 512MB
