gtab el01

As pointed out by forum member mineshrai, Verizon is preparing an update to its LTE version of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1. The EL01 update will apparently add TouchWiz to the Honeycomb tablet. The most notable feature seems to be a mini app tray that holds six apps and can be accessed from anywhere.

On Verizon’s support page, the update is said to be coming soon, with no specific date given. Note that this is not the Ice Cream Sandwich update, which Samsung has promised for Q1 and beyond.

Samsung Announces Ice Cream Sandwich For Galaxy Devices

GOOGLE-ICE-CREAM-SANDWICH-LOGO-GOOGLE-IO

Samsung has officially announced its roadmap for Ice Cream Sandwich updates: the bestselling Galaxy S II and ubersized Galaxy Note will be the first devices to get their Android version bumped to 4.0, beginning in the first quarter of 2012, while the Galaxy S II LTE, Galaxy R (a Tegra 2 version of the S II, only available in Taiwan), and various Galaxy Tabs (10.1, 8.9, 7.7, 7.0 Plus) will get their Ice Cream Sandwich treatment later, at unspecified dates that are going to be announced seperately “according to market situation and carriers’ requirements”. Same goes, we presume, for the carrier-branded versions of the Galaxy S II.. . . READ ON »

Ice Cream Sandwich CM9 Progress Revealed

cyanogen-logo

Cyanogen has been hard at work to bring you the perfect customisation of the latest Android iteration, Ice Cream Sandwich. Almost a month ago the team announced their two month hardcore-development period to put the basic framework in place for ICS to work. They’re succeeding mainly with OMAP4, MSM8660/7×30 and Exynos-based handsets, so if you own those look forward to trying CM9 first. Support has also been boasted for the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and ASUS Transformer.

Despite issues developing the new Android framework for camera and graphics drivers, the team is confident they can work around this.

“There are a number of challenges that we are up against. Google has made some pretty major cha

Galaxy Tab 10.1v Getting Official Updates (Finally)

tweet

As it is always the case in the world of technology, early adopters of most devices and brands are usually among the first to start complaining about things. This is particularly true when it comes to updates to their investments. However, most of these complaints are well founded due to them being about things that end up resulting in poor performance and overall bugginess. A very specific case for this is the Galaxy Tab 10.1v, which is the European version of the acclaimed Galaxy Tab, running under Vodaphone. As it is customary with updates, carrier and manufacturer pointed fingers at each other when people complained about not getting updates to take the tab from 3.0.1 to anything that wasn’t re. . .

The Weekly Q&A: Week 47

QA-img2

As part of our regular Q&A session here on the XDA-Developers Portal, I’ll be covering some questions and issues frequently seen here in the world of XDA. This week, we’ll concentrate on everyone’s favorite large-screened devices–Honeycomb-powered tablets!

Q: Is it possible to turn the a500 display off when connecting to a TV using HDMI out? If you try to lock the device (hit the power button), it halts the device completely. There is not brightness option for “completely off,” so that’s not an option. Ideally, I’d like to save battery if I’m watching a movie via HDMI. Does this require a 3rd party app, if so, do you know of any? [Question . . . READ ON »

Using Your Galaxy 10.1 As a Mass Storage Device

android_usb

It seems as if tablets are intended to replace the computer altogether because the ability to connect them to transfer files and media with a computer seems to be gone or at the very least, overly complicated to implement and get working. This seems to have been the case for XDA member jhild352 who had a fun time trying to mount the device as storage in his computer in order to transfer some files and a few movies. After a lot of tinkering around with several settings, he finally got it to connect. The best part is that he didn’t want others to go through the same kind of work, so he posted a very detailed guide on how to get this feat accomplished.

So, if you wanted to get some movies up and running in your 10.1 Galaxy T. . . READ ON »

Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Galaxy S II Fora Added

logo

Looks like we still believe our forum is not large enough, so we will add more device forums to grab the attention of the best developers out there. Since Samsung decided to drop two new devices at MWC 2011, we decided that they seemed suitable for our site as well. Samsung has become a rather large force to be reckoned in the mobile industry, and let’s face it… a big part of our member base has Samsung devices. Seeing as how these devices are evolving as new versions come out, we decided to open up sections for the two newest installments of Samsung Galaxy devices. Aside from what has been reported at the conference this past week, not a whole lot is yet known about these devices. However, they seem promis. . . READ ON »
