  1. Is it possible to upgrade the OS of the Samsung Tab to android 2.3 or 3.0 just like the apple os that is upgradable to latest version.

  2. i might get it.

  3. For Android 3.0, No it's not mainly because Honeycomb does not have the four physical buttons you will see in the Tab.

    For Android 2.3, Probably but not likely, the Froyo in the Tab can be upgraded to Gingerbread but I don't see Samsung will do that. You can, however, find upgrades in OS in other sites like I did on my Galaxy 5 where I upgraded it to Froyo from Eclair.

  4. Not that tempting, considering there would be a samsung tab 8.9" and 10".

  5. I believe that it will be possible to upgrade to Gingerbread though can't be sure... However am sure that I read something about it somewhere... But I think it will not be worth it to upgrade to Gingerbread though... that OS is tight-locked more than iPhone's OS is and that's saying something.
