Galaxy Tab 10.1 I/O gets Honeycomb update

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Google I/O Edition has received an update from Android 3.1. The limited edition tablet, of which 5,000 were give away free to Google I/O attendees, is the first run edition of the 10.1-inch tablet before it was redesigned on the release of the iPad 2. The new OS upgrade adds a new Books app, but removes Samsung Apps, Music Hub, Amazon, Kindle and Weatherbug applications.

The update can be manually pulled from the device by going to the About tablet > Software update menu. There is no requirement to unroot the device if it has been rooted. Some users have reported issues with the update installing, however, the device can be installed with an alternative plain vanilla update of Android 3.1. [via Android Police]
