The Galaxy Tab 10.1 Ice Cream Sandwich update has already started to roll out on the 3G models, but now the Wi-Fi models are starting to get their turn. The GT-P7510 currently has an over the air update ready in the United Kingdom.
Hopefully, Samsung will release updates in other parts of the world soon too. It should not be much longer though because Samsung promised Android 4.0 updates by the end of August.

Italian Galaxy Tab 10.1 owners will be able to download the Android 4.0 update on their tablets today. This update is just for the GT-P7500 (3G) model. The Galaxy Tab 10.1 Ice Cream Sandwich update should come to other countries soon. Most of the Galaxy Tabs will have received an update to Ice Cream Sandwich by the end of August.

Court documents have revealed that Samsung is planning an 11.8-inch Galaxy Tab referred to as P10. The display will have a resolution of 2560 x 1600. That is a good bit higher than the third generation iPad’s display resolution of 2048 x 1536. The P10 actually will have a lower pixel density due to the larger size coming in at 256 ppi vs the iPad’s 264 ppi. It will also have LTE connectivity.
We have heard rumors of an 11.6-inch Galaxy Tab with the same 2560 x 1600 resolution, but it appears that Samsung is looking to increase the size even further to 11.8 inches.
The T-Mobile Galaxy Note is going to cost the same as the AT&T Galaxy Note. They both are selling for $250 on a two year contract. That is a lot to handle for a phone that is nearly a year old. If you do not like signing contracts, then you are going to be paying $600 for the Galaxy Note.
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.
CyanogenMod 10 is the Jelly Bean version of CyanogenMod. There are now ROMs available for both the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Galaxy Tab 8.9. Users are reporting that the experience is smooth, but it is still a preview build with not everything working.
Check out the source links below to install the Jelly Bean ROMs onto your tablets today.
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.
