Samsung resolves Galaxy Tab 10.1 WiFi connectivity bug

The fixed Honeycomb 3.2 update is now rolling out for Galaxy Tab 10.1 owners

Earlier this month, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 received its official Android 3.2 update. Unfortunately, users who were quick to update may have found that it completely prevented WiFi, Bluetooth and screen rotations from working on the tablet. Samsung at the time acknowledged the problem and swiftly began looking into the issue while removing the broken update altogether.

Fast forward to a week later and Samsung today has finally offered a fix. Galaxy Tab 10.1 owners should begin seeing the fixed OTA update starting today. Of course, if you’re one of the few who nuked their WiFi radios with the first update, then this option is obviously out of reach. Fortunately, owners can update manually through a PC with Samsung Kies.

Hopefully the update is up to par this time around and moves smoothly. The original update was about 63MB, so the new update is expected to be of similar size.
