It didn’t take long after the formal launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 for the Korean to release one of the things that developers and tinkerers would like to get their hands on the most first – the source code of the tablet.

Even though it hasn’t even been released in South Korea, the source code for two variants of the bigger brother of Galaxy Note can now be downloaded from Samsung’s Open Source Developer website, with both zip files coming in at 175MB in size. The source codes released are for the SHW-M480K and SHW-M480S Galaxy Note 10.1 models.

Android Police has done some researching and found that these are 3G models of the Galaxy Note 10.1 belonging to two different local carriers in the company’s home country. The SHW-M480K is destined for Korea Telecom, while the SHW-M480S will head to Southern Korean Telecom. It is likely the source code will not be compatible with the WiFi SHW-M480 model.

The Galaxy Note 10.1 will be released globally this month, and we should find out more details of the tablet’s North American launch on August 15. Since it is still weeks away from hitting retail stores, you can prepare for its arrival by downloading the source code now.

    I’ve been waiting for Samsung to release something that was close to the Galaxy Tab 7.7 but with quad-core tech. Although I don’t think Samsung will give us a AMOLED Screen or a Screen better than ipad 3’s Retina Display. The High Resolution Screen Tech is still so expensive for the consumer. Let’s face it Samsung’s designs are a lot more attractive than most of the other Android companies. If the Galaxy Note 10.1 is a success I will go ahead and splurge on one. So what do you all think about it?

    • Unless you have some specific uses in mind for the integrated Wacom digitizer, I’d hold out and wait for a 1920×1200 or better screen on a 10.1″ tablet. The Transformer Infinity looks like a better device than the Note 10.1 to me.
