Samsung releases Android 2.3 for Galaxy Tab 10.1 then pulls it after Wi-Fi fail

Samsung had finally released its latest Android update for the Galaxy Tab 10.1 slab but users have reported downloading version 3.2 Honeycomb was crashing Wi-Fi. And bearing in mind the Galaxy Tab is a Wi-Fi-only tablet this has caused a spot of bother, leading to Samsung having to pull the update for the time being.

Little over a fortnight after Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich was revealed, with the dual-purpose smartphone and tablet operating software prepping for roll out within weeks this is hardly inspiring and whether the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 gadget or the new tablet-optimized Honeycomb software is at fault, it’s not yet clear.

The XDA developer’s forum has been awash with the confusion and a list of complaints including stalling installations and problems with the Galaxy Tab identifying an IP address from users eager to get their latest piece of Honeycomb on the Samsung tablet and a fellow tech site has been told that Samsung “are aware of an issue” and are working to fix this embarrassing fail as soon as possible.
