Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Kernel Out, Custom Kernels on the Way


It’s started, folks – one of the hottest tablets of the summer is out and it’s in the hands of many-a developer. It’s already been rooted and all that hooplah, and now comes the fun stuff – custom kernels. Samsung’s released the kernel source allowing developers to get their hands on it and do who knows what. We’re looking forward to those goods pretty soon, and we’re betting you are too. Head over to XDA to follow along. [Thanks Jeff!]

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. I was about to buy one yesterday, but I find it to be so laggy compared to the iPad. Going to wait for the next generation of tablets to come out for the holidays.

    1. I can’t speak for the galaxy tab 10.1, but I played around with the Motorola xoom, which is largely identical spec-wise, and I came away with the same impression.  Tablets will be ready for prime-time – as in, genuine laptop replacements – in the very near future, but while Tegra 2 is fine for a cell phone, it just doesn’t seem to have the power to smoothly run larger tablet resolutions.  Tablets are still great and can do amazing things, but they don’t replace laptops yet, and I have no interest (or financial ability) in taking a laptop AND tablet to work.  

      I think the galaxy tab 10.1 and 8.9 still have potential, though; if Exynos versions make it stateside, they just might have enough extra processing muscle to move around Honeycomb without constant lag.  I think I read somewhere that the US wifi versions are stuck with Tegra 2, but the GSM models for the UK will have Exynos, and hopefully the GSM models in the US will follow suit.  Can anyone confirm or deny?

      If not, Tegra 3, OMAP 5, the new snapdragons, and whatever the dual 2GHz Exynos chips are called are all on the way…  less than a year from now will be a great time to be an android geek :)

  2. That’s great news, but sadly this won’t compensate the lack of SD, USB and HDMI ports… Damn! With better connectivity this could have been the perfect tablet… :-(

    1. gee your dumb.  and if they put in hdmi it would have to be thicker then you would be whining that it’s too thick.  Go away with your mindless spew.

      1. Yuck, can you throw in another direction please! You obsviously know as little about mini-HDMI port size than about politeness…

        Do you think they dropped the SD or micro-SD because of its thickness?

        1. So your response is more mindless spew.  Way to go. (golf clap).

          Where is your whine that the new tab does not come with a pony?

          1. I guess I would be angry too if I had bought myself a connectivity-disabled tablet…

          2. I’ll let you know when I decide to get one….mmmmok.

  3. sold my Nook Color for a gTab… sold that for Xoom… sold that for Galaxy Tab yesterday and LOVE IT. Got lucky and got a unlocked bootloader too

  4. fucking loving mine

  5. Love my Tab. I cannot envison my life before without it
