Android Gingerbread Update For Verizon’s Original Galaxy Tab ‘Coming Soon’

Okay, I don’t know how to react to this.

Verizon Galaxy Tab

Verizon has announced that the Gingerbread update is ‘Coming Soon’, and will bring some new features to the tablet.

Loads, if I may say –

  • Improved security for the PIN method. When using the PIN, the device will no longer request a symbol as a numeric entry
  • Improved word selection and copy functionality
  • A ‘View Data Plan’ icon so that users can adjust their plans accordingly
  • Verizon Data Service feature will allow users to see how much data they have used so that they won’t go over
  • A new download manager app
  • The ability to use the front-facing camera as a camcorder
  • Widgets will resize to reflect landscape and portrait mode more accurately
  • Support for Verizon Pay As You Go prepaid plans
  • Google security patches
One can’t but wonder… Gingerbread? Guess you’ll have to do with a huge phone like experience rather than a more tablet-like experience. Sure, Verizon.
