  • I hope this doesn’t mean that they will drop support for the GT 10.1. We are still waiting for ICS and knowing Samsung, they can just as well abandon us in favor of the new toy on the block. I hope to be proven wrong but my experience with the Vibrant and other Samsung products leads me to be a bit pessimistic.
