This is what Samsung is showing off as their total revamp of the tablet for Android by Samsung, specifically on the Galaxy Tab family. This system will be introduced first on the Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1 and 8.9. This will be an optional upgrade for the tablet family, one you can feel free to download once it’s fully available later this year after the 10.1 and 8.9 are available in their Wifi-only versions. One of the biggest innovations here is the idea that a homescreen replacement doesn’t have to hold back, it can be a complete replacement, one that uses Android as an engine and that’s it!
Take a peek at the video we’ve got here of this new system in action and we’ll fill you in as to the entirety of the details as we receive them. It’s got widgets that are as big as the screen, an App tray that allows you to access your apps in an instant, pop and pop. Will this overlay be a hit? Have a peek here to see how it looks in working mode. Oddly enticing!
Having just looked at a rather heavy replacement of the original Android experience on the Sidekick, we’re pretty confident that Samsung has something going for them here. Thus far, we’ve only seen excellent overlays from developers and hackers working outside the market. With this tablet UI as well as the one we’ve seen now a couple times on the Samsung Sidekick, we might well be looking at a whole new door opening up for secondary overlays over Android.
