Samsung pulls Galaxy Tab Android 3.2 update
Wi-Fi only tablet loses... Wi-Fi
Samsung has yanked the Android 3.2 Honeycomb update it posted last night for the Wi-Fi only version of its Galaxy Tab 10.1in after it quickly emerged that the software disables Wi-Fi.
Certainly, that's happened to a fair few folk who did perform the update before the software was pulled. That said, not everyone appears to have been affected by the glitch.
Deleting Wi-Fi settings and using a static IP address appears to fix the problem.
Other woes include broken Bluetooth, video playback issues, disabled screen rotation and syncing trouble with Samsung's Kies app, according to posters on various Android forums.
As yet there's no word from Samsung as to when the (fixed) 3.2 update will be released. ®
How does an update get that close to release and not be tested properly?
Where were the testers?
"Right, you've all been testing the update for the past week. Any problems?"
Well, WiFi doesn't work."
"Bluetooth is broken."
"I found some video playback issues."
"The screen won't rotate."
"I can't get the Kies app to sync."
"But apart that, it's OK? Fine. Release it.
