Samsung’s just let us know that the Android 3.2 update for the Galaxy Tab 10.1 has begun to push out again. You’ll recall how a couple weeks ago the initial update led to Wifi connectivity problems for some, and the update was pulled. That bug has been squashed, and the update’s good to go again.
If you skipped the update the first time around, you can download it over the [Read More...]
If you’re rocking the new LTE Samsung Skyrocket on AT&T, you might want to check for an OTA update. An OTA to Android 2.3.6 is pushing out now, and we manually checked on our review unit (Menu>Settings>Software update>Check for updates) and sure enough, one was waiting.

Word on the streets — and in our Droid 2 forums — is that the R2-D2 version of the Droid 2 is getting its Android 2.3 Gingerbread update today, just shy of the anniversary of its launch. Dunno how many more updates we can expect to get out of this thing, and that’s a shame, be cause it really is in first-class condition. We’ve worked with him before.
The HTC Droid Incredible has been one of the most beloved Android devices on Verizon. This phone was a beast when it came out, and even now it continues to compete strongly with some of the newest devices.

That was until Verizon posted OTA update details on the HTC Droid Incredible’s [Read More...]
