Galaxy Tab 10.1 owners: you need Jelly Bean
details
If you own a Galaxy Tab 10.1 and you haven't rooted/romed your tablet, you're being held back. Samsung's software actively cripples the product to a point you don't even realize. I promise you, if you root the Tab 10.1 and put Jelly Bean onto it, it'll perform better than ever.

Just sayin' :)

screen problems
details
I have had the tablet 10.1 for 7 months. The screen is acting up. After using it for 15 minutes or maybe a bit longer the screen goes crazy. I was told to send it in but I can't do that at the moment as I am leaving the country. Anyone can help? Has anyone else experienced this problem?

Selecting audio output on an Android tablet?
details
If I have a BT headset attached to my tablet, can I route the sound output to the miniplug on the device and still use some of the hard buttons on the BT headset?

I'm mainly thinking that I want a Bluetooth remote for my tablet and the only ones that I can find are attached to headsets or have miniplug out. I need to keep the audio going through the device directly (through headphone or stripped audio from the HDMI-out), any advice?

Thanks!

Got some deals with my purchase of this device
details
After buying the device at BB I got a free keyboard with the purchase and I was happy. A few days later in their ad they where giving the SD card add on unit + $50 gift card, I got that as well and I was happy even more. A half week after that they had reduced the price of the unit and once again I came in and they agreed to price match to the new price. So over all I am really happy with the timing of my purchase of Galaxy Tab.

Slowing mobile innovation?
details
I don't think I'm alone if I say that, compared to 2010 with its breakneck pace of innovation in the mobile industry, 2011 has been a bit of a let down. It seems almost hard to believe now, but at the beginning of 2010, the most advanced phones on the market were the original Droid and the iPhone 3GS, and the tablet market didn't even exist yet.
Yet by the end of the year, Google had become the dominant mobile OS, Apple had launched both the iPhone 4 and the iPad, HP bought Palm, and Microsoft... Read more →

Are you going to install TouchWiz UX?
details
Is there anyone here that is going to install the TouchWiz UX update on their Tab 10.1? Personally, I haven't heard of a single thing that interests me at all in the update, and I want to keep as much Samsung software off my tablet as possible. As a side note, I also find it humorous that it sounds like you have to sign up for some account with Samsung in order to get this thing. Even if I wanted the update, they really should make it easier to obtain the update. So anyway, who's updating?

Ultraportable vs tablet
details
I currently use a 17" notebook as my primary machine. This is great in theory as it has a great screen and lots of muscle, but due to it's size and weight I rarely take it anywhere.As I am traveling more often now I need something more portable to take with me and would love to hear your opinions. Do you have a MacBook Air or other ultraportable that you love? How about a tablet that I couldn't pay you to stop using? In addition to basic web browsing I game and occasionally use my notebook for... Read more →

The battery life is impressive. I used it on WiFi at Google I/O all day.
details
Even while I wasn't actively using it it was still constantly downloading in the background. I still had more than 50% battery when I got on the plane that night. I watched videos on the flight home and it was still over 30% early the next morning. Truly an all day device.

It's interesting to see tablet makers are starting to competitively price their goods with Apple.
details
RIM announced that they'll be selling the PlayBook starting at $499 (available mid April), and Samsung will begin selling their 10.1 inch tablet starting at $499 as well (available in June). It looks like we finally have a game folks! And this can only mean good things for us. Color me excited! Starting prices for tablets: Apple iPad 2: $499 RIM PlayBook: $499 Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1: $499 Motorola Xoom: $599 HP TouchPad: ??? (Note: I know there's varying specs between each of these...

Didnt see this one coming but Samsung just announced 2 tablets, the redesign (of an unreleased product lol) of the 10.1 and the new 8.9.
details
http://www.engadget.com/2011/03/22/samsung-galaxy-... both are thinner than the ipad by an amount almost no one will notice and they looks just as sexy(IMO). The touchWiz UI that samsung loves using is present and in this form looks pretty good. It looks like they are changing not as much and adding things like apps and widgets. The only bummer is that we will have to wait till june 8th to buy one. Like I've said before I'm in no rush to... Read more →
