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…
Samsung released the kernel source code for the newly released Galaxy Tab 10.1 a few weeks ago and everybody wondered where the love was for the Galaxy Tab 10.1v. Well Samsung did not want to play favorites and released the kernel source code for the 10.1v.
So what is the good of a source code? Two words – overclocked kernels. The Galaxy Tab 10.1 already has a 1.4 GHz overclocked kernel and now we can expect the same from its slightly older brother.

I know a lot of you really like the Galaxy Tab 10.1v, but Vodafone UK just announced that it will be phasing out the Galaxy Tab 10.1v in favor of the slimmer Galaxy Tab 10.1. From the day that the redesigned Galaxy Tab 10.1 was announced, it was known that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 would not be around for long. It looks like those days will soon be upon us.
HDblog uploaded a video earlier this week demonstrating different browsers on the Galaxy Tab 10.1V that is available to some starting today. The video examines the speed and quality of the default Honeycomb browser, Dolphin Browser, and Opera Mobile. The results are consistent for the most part on the original Galaxy Tab, but the default browser has definitely started to catch up.
Video after the break.
