Unfortunately, this feature is not supported in Gingerbread 2.3 but after a couple of updates you can avail the same feature once you have updated your Tablet to 2.3.6 Gingerbread.

If you do not want to update anymore, then you can use Go Launcher along with Go keyboard to have the same features. It is available free of cost in the Android Market.

It will provide you options like custom keyboard display buttons and languages.

Best of luck.

If you have a Samsung P1000 Galaxy Tab and you upgraded it to Android 2.3 Gingerbread then there’s no problem. The Samsung P1000 Galaxy Tab ships with Android 2.2 Froyo and is officially upgradable to Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Since your tablet is now running on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, the currently installed keyboard language app may no longer be compatible with the current operating system.

You need to uninstall it so as to also free up some space. Also, if you still want to install new keyboard languages on your tablet, the app you’ll be installing should now be compatible or support Android 2.3 Gingerbread.


The apps that you previously install on your device that are limited to Android 2.2 Froyo only are no longer compatible and you will not be able to install them back. If you want a keyboard app, try SwiftKey Keyboard.
