Take this with the grain of Salt we are posting it with.
USA Today ran a story this morning with their analysis of the tablet space and what we can expect at CES.
While the piece is very Apple centric, they did quote Andy Rubin and spoke with Toshiba’s Jeff Barney and Samsung’s CSO, Omar Khan.
Barney told USA Today that Toshiba would be releasing a 10″ tablet with honeycomb on it. Toshiba released the Folio at the IFA convention in Berlin in September however by November it had been pulled off shelves in the UK.
USA Today said that Samsung’s Khan said Android 2.3 worked great for his tablet. We find this interesting as the Galaxy Tab ships with Android 2.2 on it and not Android 2.3 “Gingerbread”.
So did Khan misspeak? Did USA Today misquote? Is Khan already playing with Gingerbread on his Galaxy Tab? Or is an upgrade to Gingerbread on the way?
Samsung has recently come under fire by scores of US based disgruntled Galaxy S users who have yet to see a Froyo (Android 2.2) update to their devices.
What do you think?
