I bought a Wpad 7′ tablet PC on which is Android 2.2, I want to upgrade to Android 2.3. How can I do that?

    Ask the manufacturer if your tablet can support an upgrade, some device can't be updated. Go to settings > about > update then choose how to update.

    Hello Umapathi!

    Your situation is very strange - first of all, some claim that the Wpad
    7 can upgrade to Honeycomb (3), while others claim it can only go up to
    Gingerbread. As a tablet, you would definitely want Honeycomb as
    Gingerbread is not really designed for tablets. Froyo even less so.

    Second, there doesn't appear to be any resources available to download
    the firmware update.

    The only suggestion that I have is to attempt a manual update from
    within either Google Play (which is what this
    site suggests doing
    ) or from within the operating system itself.

    : WiFi must be turned on and connected in order for this
    process to work.

    Step one: Go to Settings.

    Step two: Go to "About Tablet"

    Step three: Go to Software Update

    It should update after that point. However, not all devices are
    compatible with this method.

    Try going to Settings --> About Device --> Update.
