The CyanogenMod 10 Preview has been ported to the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 and the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1. These ROMs are a preview of what is to come in CyanogenMod 10 and are currently the only way to get Android 4.1 Jelly Bean on those tablets.
Before you install these ROMs understand that there are bugs and make a backup so you can go back if anything goes wrong.
There are also CM10 builds available for the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the Galaxy Tab 8.9.

This week’s Galaxy Tab wallpaper is called Eye In The Sky. It was created by Richard Mohler.
A Korean Galaxy Note 10.1 was unboxed today and some more of the specs are leaked because of it. It has the same 1.4Ghz Quad Core Exynos 4412 processor as the Galaxy S III, 2 GB of RAM, 1280 x 800 screen resolution, 16 GB of internal storage, MicroSD support, 5 MP rear camera, 1.9 MP front camera, 7,000 mAh battery, Wi-Fi, HSPA+, Bluetooth, GPS, and Ice Cream Sandwich.
Samsung has been known to change the RAM for different countries, so some countries may get 2 GB of RAM while others are stuck with 1 GB.
Samsung is going to have a major Galaxy announcement on August 15th, but the actual topic is up in the air. The Galaxy Note 2 has been speculated for some time now and it would be as good of time as any to announce it. It is rumored to have a 5.5 inch screen with a quad-core or dual-core Exynos processor. Of course it will have a S-Pen stylus too.
The Galaxy Note 10.1 may appear to be vaporware, but a new commercial for it appeared on YouTube yesterday. It mentions the tablet having a 10 inch multiscreen. I was perplexed by this, but then I saw what they meant. You can open up two applications side by side and drag and drop between them. The multiscreen seems limited in the commercial because it appears like there are only three options for applications – Internet, Polaris Office, and Video player. Perhaps those are just open applications though.
Hopefully the Galaxy Note 10.1 lands soon! Check out the video in the mean time.
