Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 software update delivered 2012.05.06


The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 has only been available in the U.S. for two weeks. However, it already has a software update available. I woke up this morning to see this notice on my device after powering on its display. It is not clear what the update brings. However, Samsung’s notice states: Software and Stability improvements included. The Tab 2 7.0 has not had any issues in the 9 days I’ve been using it. So, I’m not sure what stability issues it addresses. I should note that the device’s apparent stability is a welcome change from the Honeycomb based Tab 10.1 which saw either an Android subsystem (like the windows manager) or apps crash several times a day.
