OTA update for the Galaxy Tab 10.1 has gone live, with the 188MB software now being offered to users of the Honeycomb slate. The new firmware brings with it Samsung's own TouchWiz UI for tablets, upgrading the home screen with various new panes and a compact task-launcher for common apps. There's also a version of Swype for tablets along for the ride, together with mobile printing and several enterprise features to try to encourage businesses to consider the Tab 10.1 too. Full details of what's in the update are here. It's worth noting, however, that once you've installed the update you won't be able to remove it. Samsung has confirmed that it's a permanent thing, with no roll-back option, so if you're not sure whether you'd prefer to keep the stock Honeycomb UI - or are wary of potential bugs - then you might want to hold off until the first bug reports come in. Everyone else, hit that Update button in the Galaxy Tab 10.1's settings page to get the new firmware.

is on hold in Australia, clarifying that the company's agreement with Apple only covers the US version of the tablet. According to Samsung's official statement, given to AusDroid, the original Apple complaint covered "a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 variant that Samsung Electronics had no plans of selling in Australia." The Korean company says that, as indicated in reports yesterday, the settlement between it and Apple was "a mutual agreement" rather than a court injunction. That agreement only concerns the contentious US version of the slate, whereas the Australian variant is presumably different so as to avoid infringing Apple patents. Samsung, therefore, will push ahead with its Galaxy Tab 10.1 launch schedule, saying that the 10-inch model will be released soon. A hearing in Australia has been scheduled for August 29 to review the status of the localized suit.
Apple Inc. filed a complaint with the Federal Court of Australia involving a Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1 variant that Samsung Electronics had no plans of selling in Australia. No injunction was issued by the court and the parties in the case reached a mutual agreement which stipulates that the variant in question will not be sold in Australia. A Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1 for the Australian market will be released in the near future. This undertaking does not affect any other Samsung smartphone or tablet available in the Australian market or other countries. Samsung will continue to actively defend and protect our intellectual property to ensure our continued innovation and growth in the mobile communication business.[Thanks Dy4me!]
NVIDIA Tabletpalooza Giveaway. Sadly this is the last week of our NVIDIA giveaway and even though this is coming to and end we have plenty more freebies going on now, and coming in the future. This last week we are giving away the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 to one lucky reader.
suspected earlier in the week. It is exciting to see this coming to market but I'm still wondering where the 4G LTE hardware upgrade for all the Xoom owners went.
posters arriving in Verizon stores it has to be coming soon right? They wouldn't advertise if it wasn't coming relatively soon. We now have a giveaway by Verizon that might have revealed and confirmed the 28th launch date.
pre-order at the end of June. A few users that ordered that exact day (June 29th) are now getting email replies suggesting the tablet will ship on the 26th, that is just this Tuesday.
