Geeks like to mod. We all know this to be true. We dual boot and change things to make them our own, warranty be damned. If you are the modding sort of geek staring at a shiny new Galaxy Tab wondering what to do, here you go.
Samsung, the name behind the brand new Galaxy Tab tablet device that's popping up all over the globe, has just announced an exclusive partnership with MTV. With it, the Galaxy Tab will be the lone device to feature a brand new MTV-exclusive application. But, if you're hoping its a great way to watch new music videos whenever you want, sadly that's not the case. Not even close, actually. No, instead you'll get to watch Jersey Shore whenever you want. And other shows, too, but who cares about that, right?
Samsung is still on a roll with the release dates for their tablet device, the Galaxy Tab. While it's interesting enough to see where the tablet will pop up next, half of the fun comes in the fact that it looks like carriers are perfectly complacent pricing the device however they see fit. For example, Bell Mobility is the next carrier to launch the device, and they are doing some pretty interesting things with the pricing.
Samsung has now announced the DJ30 update for the Sprint version of the Galaxy Tab. The last time users saw an update, it could not be located on Sprint's OTA servers and eventually failed. This update is now confirmed to be working and bringing many fixes along with it.
Samsung has some pretty strong claims about the tablet market. They see it as a lucrative prospect, and they plan on hitting it hard come 2011. Of course, their first device in the market was the Galaxy Tab, and the company believes that they will be able to sell a ridiculous amount of them just in the year 2010, even as it's wrapping up. But, according to one analyst, that's not actually going to happen -- in fact, he believes quite the opposite.
The newest OTA news happens to be coming not from a smartphone, but from Sprint's recently released Galaxy Tab. According to the guys over at Android Central, users of the device were prompted with system update MR0 DJ30. The update was said to address "the Microsoft Exchange IT Admin policy compliance and SMS short code messaging.”

The Samsung Galaxy Tab is available in the US already on T-Mobile and Verizon, and soon AT&T and Sprint, but Canadians aren't so lucky- they haven't even got an official pricing of the famed 7-inch tablet.
