Galaxy Tab 10.1 landing with 3.1, TouchWiz

Samsung has revealed through Facebook page that its Galaxy Tab 10.1 will ship with Android 3.1 on its release in the US. The product information page on its US website has also been updated to reflect this. However, it won't be shipping with a plain vanilla version of the Honeycomb OS. Instead, it will incorporate latest version of Samsung's TouchWiz customization with L!vepanel.

The Galaxy Tab 10.1 will be the revised, slimmer version that Samsung showed in late March in a direct response to the launch of Apple's iPad 2. The first version of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 displayed at the World Mobile Congress in February was thinner than the original iPad at 10.9mm.

The revised MkII version that will ship to the US is now slightly thinner than the iPad 2 at 8.6mm. When it launched, it was also slated to run a plain vanilla version of Android 3.0. Users who purchased the Limited Edition Galaxy Tab 10.1, which is the first gen device, will get an update to Android 3.1 in the coming weeks.

It will still ship with the NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core processor clocked at 1GHz. It also retains some hardware advantages over the iPad 2 in its 8-megapixel rear camera and 2-megapixel front facing camera. Its 3G connection is also quicker, capable of supporting 21Mbps HSPA+ download speeds.
