Samsung Confirms Galaxy Tab to Launch with Android 3.1 in “Few Days”

Samsung, set to drop their Galaxy Tab 10.1 on the masses in just a “few days”, has confirmed that the tablet will ship with the latest version of Android.  That’s the 3.1 release of Honeycomb for those keeping score at home.  Samsung recently gave away 5,500 special edition models at Google IO where it was promised that 3.1 would arrive in a few weeks.  Considering the timing, we’re optimistic in an update coming to the lucky developers in attendance right around the launch of the “regular” Tab 10.1.

Android 3.1 was announced at Google IO with notable new features such as support for the Open Acessory and USB host APIs , widgets that can be resized, and improved access to running applications.

    Still wondering if my 10.1 tab will be “upgraded” to TouchWiz.  I love the honeycomb ui, I’ll be sad to see it touched.
