The T-Mobile Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus Ice Cream Sandwich update is hitting tablets today. The only catch is that you must use Samsung Kies to upgrade your tablet. You can download it from Samsung’s website.
An over the air update would be much more convenient, but at least you can get Android 4.0 goodness on your Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus.
American Galaxy Tab 10.1 Wi-Fi owners will be happy to hear that Samsung has started to push out an over the air update to their devices. The Galaxy Tab 10.1 Wi-Fi Ice Cream Sandwich update brings all the goodies of Android 4.0.
It is not Jelly Bean, but Ice Cream Sandwich is a lot better than Honeycomb.
The update can be installed through Kies desktop software, OTA update, or by flashing it from Sam Firmware. The easiest way is over the air and you can prompt it to check for updates in settings.
The Galaxy Note 10.1 has been rooted before it has been made available to the general public. The instructions can all be found on the website RootGalaxyNote.com. I would not be surprised if we saw Jelly Bean on the Galaxy Note 10.1 before September.

There was a time when the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 was a compelling 7-inch tablet to buy. Then the Nexus 7 launched at a great price with great specs. The Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 stopped being the best bargain.
Engadget is reporting that Best Buy might start selling a Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 Student Edition tablet on August 19th. It appears to be the same exact Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 bundled with a keyboard dock and USB connector.
The Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 is reported to sell for the same $250 price that the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 originally sold for. It seems like a pretty good deal if you are interested in those accessories.
The Galaxy Note 10.1 now has a release date and pricing for Hong Kong. This information is only for the 3G variant of the Note 10.1, but we know that the Wi-Fi version will also come this month. The 3G Galaxy Note 10.1 is launching in Hong Kong on August 16th. It will cost HKD 4,998 (~$644.41).
That is very similar pricing to the cellular version of the iPad. The Wi-Fi version should end up costing between $500 and $550.

This video demonstrates how the Galaxy Note 10.1 can be used with multitasking, note taking, education, photo editing, and more.
The new multitasking is dubbed Multiscreens. The top right corner has a dropdown of applications that can run in the Multiscreen view. Multiscreen allows for true multitasking by having two full applications on the screen at once, but it is limited by the compatible apps. Drag and drop functionality is included between the open applications.
The invites to the major Galaxy announcement have been sent out. There is clearly a tablet shaped outline found on the invitation. The squiggly lines that come off of it look like they could be drawn with a stylus. Everything points to this press event being about the Galaxy Note 10.1.
It looks like it will be available soon. Are you planning on buying one?

The Galaxy Note 2 will be shown off at a Samsung Mobile Unpacked event on August 29th. It will take place in Berlin two days before IFA officially starts. The original Galaxy Note was also announced in Berlin at IFA.
A spokesperson for Samsung said, “We plan to unveil the next Galaxy Note at the Samsung Mobile Unpacked event in Berlin on August 29.”
This leaves us to wonder what the major Galaxy announcement will be on August 15th. The Galaxy Note 10.1 does not qualify as major by itself in my opinion. Perhaps they will also announce the Galaxy Tab 11.8?
