TouchWiz UX over-the-air update for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is coming August 5th
For those Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 owners unable to make it to New York City to get the TouchWiz UX update for the Honeycomb tablet, you’ll be interested to know that an over-the-air update for it will start rolling out August 5th.

That’s not too shabby seeing that the commute into the city can be costly and cumbersome for some people. Not only will it offer the first customized Android Honeycomb experience, but Samsung throws in quite a few other niceties that will enhance the total experience.

However, if there’s one new thing that most people will appreciate more than others, it has to be the new “Mini Mode Tray” that offers quick access to paneled apps like the Task Manager, Calendar, World Clock, Pen Memo, Calculator, and Music Player.

Getting it doesn’t take a rocket scientist because you’ll only need to navigate to the system updates section under the Android settings menu to get it.

Yes! I'm actually surprised that Samsung is releasing it so soon! I thought it would be a month or two wait, from how Samsung isn't very good when it comes to updates. But I can't wait until I get the update on my Galaxy Tab 10.1! UX seems promising!

Please samsung please just use stock android. I like your phones and if the charge had stock android i would have bought it. I HATE TOUCHWIZ. even the new one.

May be a dumb question. But will it also include the 3.2 update or is it an update just to add Touchwiz UX?

Does anybody know if it will fix the issue with wallpaper crop? I know it's a honeycomb problem, but maybe they somehow replaced the way you set wallpaers with Touchwiz.
