Our friend Brandon from PocketNow somehow stumbled across some promotional materials Samsung will be using to highlight features of its new 8.9-inch Galaxy Tab expected to be announced here in Orlando tomorrow. (We’re secretly jealous because we were interrogated the moment we even looked at an unfinished booth.)
Anywho, Samsung’s looking to be the first OEM to customize Honeycomb as they’ll be debuting a new user interface called Live Panels. It has oversized versions of widgets found in other TouchWiz devices like Buddies Now, Agenda, Weather, News, etc.
It also implements a feature called “Mini Apps Tray” that’ll allow you to switch between bite-sized apps that won’t kick you back to the homescreen. We imagine things like a quick look at the weather and a notepad will be included among the 6 applications they’re starting with. We’ll have to get a better idea of this stuff tomorrow when Samsung unveils it so be sure to stick with us as we’ll be on hand to provide coverage.
