SamMobile is reporting that the Galaxy Tab line will receive an update to Ice Cream Sandwich very soon. The updates will apparently start in July, but most are planned for August. Keep reading for the list of Galaxy Tabs to get the update then. It appears to be the entire Honeycomb lineup.
The Galaxy Tab 10.1 is now available at GameStop. It will run you $400, which is a pretty good deal for a new 16 GB Galaxy Tab 10.1. After all Amazon charges about $450 for it. The tablet is the Wi-Fi only version, even though the image below claims HSPA+ access. The product page shows the model number to be the Wi-Fi only model.
The Galaxy Tab 10.1 already had some support for CyanogenMod 9 (Wi-Fi and T-Mobile), but today three more variants are being supported. Those three are Verizon’s Galaxy Tab 10.1, the unlocked Galaxy Tab 10.1, and surprisingly the Galaxy Tab 10.1v. I do not think that these nightly releases are directly flashable, but I will probably post a tutorial on how to get them onto your Galaxy Tab 10.1(v).
We have already heard Samsung’s plan for Wi-Fi Galaxy Tabs and several other carriers, but T-Mobile was glaringly absent. Now the T-Mobile plans are finally out and the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus and the Galaxy Tab 10.1 will both receive upgrades to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The only question left is how long until it is released.
Many power users install custom ROMs and overclocked kernels to get the most out of their tablets. The problem with tweaking your device is that you will not be able to download any official builds and updates from Samsung until you return back to stock software. This tutorial can also be helpful if you have installed custom software incorrectly and your device is not working properly.
