At a special event in New York last night, Samsung announced that the Galaxy Tab will become available through all major carriers in the US. This is a significant feat mirroring the one recently achieved with the Samsung Galaxy smartphone range. Presumably, the deals were cut at the same time. So, the carriers include Sprint, AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile and may eventually cover some locals too. Also, Samsung’s Dale Sohn stated that the Tab should be available for the holiday season and furthermore, that there is a WiFi-only option on the way. Samsung Mobile today announced the upcoming availability of…

HP acquired Palm for $1.2 billion and all the good stuff that goes with that, and yet they still appear to have their eyes set firmly on an Android tablet. The HP Zeen C510 was apparently spotted in China with a fully customized version of the Android OS, that oddly allows no customization for the user (or so we’ve been led to believe). The new UI that HP have developed is called TouchSmart. Sure, it comes bundled with a few things like YouTube, Facebook and a Barnes & Noble recommendation widget, but the lack of control over the home-screen is…

The Sakshat tablet still appears to be on track to land in January 2011. The Indian government recently awarded the manufacturing contract to HCL, a massive electronics, computing and information technology company. This type of movement from the Indian government suggests that they are very serious about getting things going for January and apparently we can expect 1 million units for the first phase. This phase will include only the 7-inch version but in the future we can expect 5-inch and 9-inch too. For now, the 7-inch version will feature 2 GB RAM, WiFi connectivity, camera, USB port and the…

The Samsung Galaxy Tab has had the root treatment from Germany hackers developers Sera-Apps (in German). This achievement is something that the Android community can become excited about as it makes the Samsung Galaxy Tab one of the most flexible tablets around (well, soon to be around). Sera-Apps allegedly rooted a Tab at the IFA trade show, and in doing so it is possible that Samsung will increase efforts to ‘lock down’ the device to prevent it from becoming rooted so easily. The good news is that the developers haven’t made public their method, which is a smart thing to…
