The CyanogenMod team may have released their first public build of CM9 for the Galaxy Tab 10.1, but the 10.1 has been noticeably absent from the nightly builds of CM9 that came out after.
Not too long ago Samsung announced what they are calling the Galaxy Tab 2. The Galaxy Tab 2 was essentially the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus with phone functionality. Likewise, the Galaxy Tab 2 (10.1) is the basically the Galaxy Tab 10.1 with phone capabilities.
We have had unofficial releases of CyanogenMod 9 builds for months on the Galaxy Tab 10.1, but today we get our first ROM from an official channel. Steve Kondik, CyanogenMod founder who now works for Samsung, released the pre-alpha version of CM9 for the Galaxy Tab 10.1 today via a post on Google+. You can download the files here.
The installation is quite simple. Just flash the recovery image in fastboot and then the .zip file.
Samsung might have just outed their announcement at Mobile World Congress today by mistake. Their website listed it in their Guide to Samsung Developer Day at MWC 2012. Since then, Samsung has taken down the webpage with this on it.
US Cellular has just announced its two first LTE devices and one of them just happens to be the Galaxy Tab 10.1. There is no word on pricing yet it will be available sometime this March.
US Cellular’s LTE network will launch in Wisconsin, Maine, Iowa, North Carolina, Oklahoma and Texas, but will continue to expand. If you aren’t in those areas and want to get an LTE equipped Galaxy Tab, then you should look to Verizon and AT&T for that.
