Scott has been running AndroidGuys since 2007 and loves nothing more than reading up on the latest smartphone rumors. His other mobile efforts can be found on AndroidAtlas (CNET) where he covers Google's mobile platform.
Samsung released the open source code of their Galaxy Tab OS to any and all interested parties to grab. Chances are, only select third parties are going to download the code and do all the wonderful hacking and modding. Having said that, it’s nice to see Samsung stepping up to offer whatever open source data they can. So far, T-Mobile and Sprint are the only US versions available, but that may change with the releases of Verizon and AT&T flavors down the road.
The Galaxy Tab presents new and unique challenges to hackers and modders in that it is the first largely available Android tablet from a major manufacturer. It will be fun to see how the development community gets behind the device.
