Busted! Galaxy Tab will be Android Only!

A recent article cycling the internet right now is claiming that the new Samsung Galaxy Tab, the unreleased Android Tablet, will be “upgradeable” to Google’s Chrome OS when it comes out. The article continues to describe that “owners who aren’t tech savvy should have this upgrade carried out by a professional”. Additionally, the article states that Samsung is planning on updating the device to Android 3.0 when it releases. This was a tough one to swallow, since we here at The Droid Guy have been covering the Galaxy Tab  from the beginning, and knew all of these statements to be false. Let’s break it down.

Samsung will not be releasing Chrome OS for the Galaxy Tab. Period. This is directly from Kim Titus, the Director of PR for Samsung. It’s not going to happen.

The Galaxy Tab will be getting 2.3, or “Gingerbread”, but Samsung has plans for a separate “Honeycomb” Tablet, as confirmed by Samsung at IFA 2010.

Any update released by Samsung will be a one button update. There will never a an update from Samsung that will require a professional. CyanogenMod 6 on the other hand… well that’s a story for another time!
