Rumor Alert:

Don’t get your hopes up too fast: this rumor comes from an Amsterdam-based site called SamFirmwares – one we’ve never heard of before. Still, they seem to have a sizable following and we’ll play with this rumor on a boring weekend: the Samsung Galaxy S and Tab are expected to receive Android 2.3 at the end of Q1 or the beginning of Q2 2011, as they alleged on their Twitter account. Yes, I know: we’re still waiting on Froyo for most of their America variants. That’s why we’re approaching this rumor with a high degree of uncertainty and with the smallest of grains of salt. I suggest you do the same. Either way, it’s nice to have any sort of inkling of hope that Samsung is trying to improve its game. The frequency of updates Samsung has doled out is considered by many to be subpar. As much as we want to believe, we will take this with a grain of salt.
