Hard to believe that the folks paying for monthly data on the 8.9 do not get an update and the free wifi tablet gets updates first. I have a 8.9 LTE, decent tablet, but if it gets left behind I’ll not buy another Sammy…even though I love my G3 and 8.9.

Enough time?. Samsung basically needs to port Touchwiz, maybe some drivers. Only totally noob coders need a year to do it. Or maybe Samsung has only one coder for Gtab 8.9 and none for 3G version.
Simply, these products are at the bottom of the Koreans priority queu.

you think samsung have enough of time…..if you are the one who is responsible for the updates then you’ll feel that it is very hard because need to customize a lot…

Samsung’s bad behaviour with Galaxy Tab 10.1/8.9 uodates cannot be justified by saying that others don’t better. Does one say that my lousy work can be justified because someone else somewhere does same thing even worse..

The real reason behind this almost-a-year-delay-to-get-out-of-date-update circus is the fact that Gtabs didn’t sell very well against iPads and Kindle, we are commercially useless customers to Samsung.

We Gtab owners are merely a burden to Samsung, we whine about lacking support/updates and refuse to buy a new Samsung Tablet to get our tablet OS up to date (that actually looks like the only option, since ICS update is the last that Samsung will provide)

@spike012: Yes, I see that Asus updates new rom for their new Transformer models very soon. But you have to know that their roms have very little customization, not like Samsung’s roms. And one important thing that everytime Asus releases a new rom, they bonus their customers a bang of bugs in their roms. LOL
