Skype video calls are a breeze to create and enjoy on the Galaxy Tab 10.1. First install Skype from the Android Market. Then login with your Skype account. Obviously, if you do not have one, then you can create one on Skype.com. Then find a contact that you would like to call. (Note I just called myself on my laptop with another account.)
If you did not know, there is an unofficial version of Cyanogen Mod 9 that was released in December. Now a new version of CM9 has been compiled with some bug fixes.

No 3G / 4G
Camera doesn’t work
No HQ Videoplayback
No Netflix yet
Wallet does FC a lot
Installation instructions are the same with any custom ROM. Just check out the source link below for instructions if you need help.

Verizon users can finally download the TouchWiz update on their LTE Galaxy Tab 10.1s. The update is 351 MB, so downloading it could take several minutes depending on your connection.
Want to know more about TouchWiz UX? We have a much more in-depth look at it here. Personally, I find it to be an improvement over stock Honeycomb.
Any Verizon customers excited about this update?
Apple has just released some guidelines that it suggests Samsung should follow for all future tablets that they design. People have joked that the tablet featured above from an episode of The Office would fit Apple’s guidelines.
Check out the list below for some of the aspects Apple would like to see in Samsung’s next tablet.
- Overall shape that isn’t rectangular, or doesn’t have rounded corners.
- Thick frames rather than a thin rim around the front surface.
- Front surface that isn’t entirely flat.
- Profiles that aren’t thin.
- Cluttered appearance.

Australia has finally overruled the injunction of the Galaxy Tab 10.1. This means that the tablet is now available in the country.
Apple is obviously not happy with this decision. Check out their response.
It’s no coincidence that Samsung’s latest products look a lot like the iPhone and iPad, from the shape of the hardware to the user interface and even the packaging. This kind of blatant copying is wrong and, as we’ve said many times before, we need to protect Apple’s intellectual property when companies steal our ideas.
Apple may be pressing on in the courts, but Australians can buy the Galaxy Tab 10.1 now if they like.
