Galaxy Tab 10.1 to hit US stores with Android 3.1 any day now

We mentioned that Samsung Germany recently updated their online store to include a host of accessories for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. This pointed to the possibility of the 10.1′s official release very soon and our suspicions look to be on the money.

Samsung US cheeky tweet

Samsung US let out a highly suggestive tweet the other day with a link to the Galaxy Tab 10.1 notification site. Rumor has it that 8 June is the date to mark down in your calendars and if all goes to plan, you should be able to pick up some 8.6mm thick goodness from then on. Since the tweet is coming from Samsung US, this suspected release may only be for the US market but we can’t be sure. What we are certain of is that the 10.1 will in fact now ship with Android 3.1 rather than the expected 3.0, this information coming courtesy of a follow up tweet again from Samsung US. The 3.1 update includes notable improvements like faster graphics and hardware acceleration, resizable home screen widgets, USB hosting and the recent apps screen will now be able to display up to 16 apps.

If you’re in the US have your credit card ready for 8 June, you never know…
