I am really looking forward to the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 hitting the market for folks to get hands on. I know I am not the only one. We put up a review not long ago of the Galaxy 10.1 that was handed out at Google I/O and we liked the thing pretty well. The tablet we laid our hands on was packing Android 3.0.1 under the hood. There is now evidence surfacing directly from Samsung that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 may in fact be packing Android 3.1 when it hits stores.

As you can see in the photo here the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 product page, the description now lists Android 3.1 as the OS behind the scenes. All the other hardware remains the same with the 1280 x 800 10.1-inch screen, 1GHz Tegra 2 dual-core processor, and 65536MB of storage. The Tab 10.1 also has a 7000mAh battery for all day run time. The front camera is a 2MP unit and the rear camera is a 3MP offering.

To add another wrinkle to the saga of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 a tweet also surfaced that said the tablet is only days away. Granted some might consider the June 8 launch date that has been talked about for a long time now to be days away, those days just happen to add up to weeks. That June 8 launch may be delayed a bit to allow the Tabs to get Android 3.1. We will have to wait for more information to be sure when the 10.1 is shipping.
