Samsung uploads ICS source code for Galaxy Note 10.1, Galaxy Tab 10.1, and Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus

Good ol’ Samsung is opening the ‘open source’ gate once more for its army of tablets. The gate was earlier opened for some 3G variants of the Galaxy Note 10.1. Now, several WiFi variants of the Galaxy Note 10.1 are getting their source code released as well, specifically the GT-N8000, GT-N8010, and GT-N8013 model. It’s worth noting that these slates aren’t even available for purchase yet.

And that’s not where the open source party stops chez Samsung. The Koreans have also uploaded the ICS source code for the 3G and WiFi model of the Galaxy Tab 10.1, specifically the GT-P7500 and GT-P7510 model. Hopefully, this means that the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade for the original 10.1-inch Android tablet will expand to other regions soon. So far, the update has been pushed out in the UK and Italy, while a roll out in the USA seems to be imminent.

Next on the list is the WiFi Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus (GT-P6210). Likewise, you can now download the ICS source code for the tablet from the company’s open source website.

Developers will have a field day with the released kernel source of the tablets. Users, meanwhile, can expect to see more solid and stable custom ROMs for the Galaxy Note 10.1, Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus soon.

    I recently bought a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7inch after reading some reviews and I am very happy with my order, the 7inch model was just the right size for me. Would recommend getting 1.
