Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 coming in a “few days” with Honeycomb 3.1 on board
Even though the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 was originally announced to come with Android 3.0 out of the box, we now know that the tablet will actually ship running the updated 3.1 version of Google's tablet-optimized platform. Luckily, this isn't a rumor nor a leak - the source of the news is the manufacturer itself. The product page for the upcoming Galaxy Tabs has been already updated, and a confirmation was posted on Samsung's official Facebook page.

Some of the new features that Android 3.1 Honeycomb brings along are support for USB peripherals and Adobe Flash 10.2, enhanced widget customization options, and a movie rental service courtesy of Google itself. If you would like to learn more, feel free to check out our Android 3.1 Honeycomb hands-on.

Those of you who are more interested in the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1's release date rather than the OS that it will come with, a Samsung representative mentioned that the tablet is “only a few days away from launch.” This comes as a pleasant surprise to us because the tablet's launch date was promised to be June 8 – 2 weeks away from today. Could Samsung be possibly getting ready for an early launch? Nevertheless, those of you who are already impatient and want to have one as soon as possible, can head over to J&R's web site, where the Galaxy Tab 10.1 is already available for pre-order.
