While its arrival date in India is still uncertain, we at least know now what the hold up was all along. Samsung posted on their site about an upcoming update for the Galaxy Tab 10.1 that’s supposed to bring some big improvements to the tablet including the addition of their TouchWiz UI to Honeycomb. The new features include Live Panel, a magazine-like widget that gives you instant access to weather, social updates and news right from the home screen. There’s also a Mini Apps tray, Clipboard and Indicator Quick Panel for toggling Wi-Fi, notifications, etc.
Expected very soon
Some enterprise features include on-device encryption and Cisco VPN capabilities. Samsung will also implement Hubs giving you a one stop shop for all your movies, music, social networking and e-books. You’ll finally be able to connect USB drives, SD cards and HDMI, but all through optional accessories. Whenever Samsung decides to launch the Tab 10.1 in India, they have to nail the pricing or else it won’t work. The Motorola Xoom and Acer’s ICONIA A500 will be its biggest competition and I feel 32-35K would be a very aggressive end user price for the 3G version, what do you think?
