Samsung Mobile Details Full TouchWiz UX Update for Galaxy Tab 10.1

Samsung has issued a formal press release to break down all of the new features set to arrive with the forthcoming Galaxy Tab 10.1 software update.  Making its debut today in New York City, the public rollout will begin this Friday, August 5th and hit tablets everywhere.  Among the details in the update are the inclusion of TouchWiz UX, Samsung Media Hub, a couple of applications, and improved enterprise support.

Hit the break to see a full list of features for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 update!  Don’t forget, if you’re in New York City today (August 3), you can take your tablet to Samsung directly and they’ll sideload the update for you while you wait (5-10 minutes).  Please note that your tablet will essentially be wiped and you’ll lose any data and apps you have stored.  Otherwise, sit tight and wait for the public deployment.
