Verizon’s Galaxy Tab 7.7 Receiving Minor Update to Reduce Electrical Consumption

tab 7.7 uypdate

A new update is headed to owners of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 on Verizon. It’s incredibly minor in size and also in features. In fact, the only thing it brings is an enhancement to reduce the electrical consumption during power off charging.

When these support docs go live, we typically see the update arrive within a week or so.

The update is 12.2MB in size. More info.

      I took my old outdated 7.7 back to the store that I purchased from, and the manager gladly ordered me a Brand New one. Since it was delayed from the warehouse, he called another store manager and authorized an in store swap. Now I have ICS and it runs like a dream. I called 611 from my VZ phone and they told me I could take it back to the store. It’s worth trying. Good luck!!

    My galaxy tab 7.7 Verizon 4GLTE was purchased at the Verizon retail store about a month ago. It had stock 4.0.4 I’ve Cream Sandwhich. I do not use the stock launcher, it is extremely laggy and freezes constantly. Luckily, free alternatives are available in the Google Play store, and most of them fix the problem of lag and minor problems while at the home screen(s). I am glad to hear that it will be receiving Jelly Bean OS, hopefully soon, but I’m not counting on it.

    THANKS VERIZON THIS IS THE UPDATE I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR! ELECTRICAL CONSUMPTION WHILE CHARGING WITH THE SCREEN OFF HAS BEEN MY NUMBER ONE CONCERN, NOT ANY SOFTWARE UPDATES! I /s if you don’t get sarcasm

    Is the 7.7 still on Honeycomb or what?
