Samsung has just released a list of devices that will be receiving an update to Gingerbread in the near future. This is a pretty hefty list of devices which includes the Galaxy Tab, Ace, Gio, Fit and Mini. The update is already making its rounds to the Galaxy S device as we speak. We wouldâ€™ve loved to see the Galaxy Tab updated to Honeycomb but that wonâ€™t happen until after the Galaxy Tab 8.9 and 10.1 are released officially. Check out the full list of devices and more information can be found below in the full press release.
