Samsung released their official promotional video for the Galaxy 10.1 today with several Touchwiz elements in tow, notably several widgets and icon skins. But this is what we expected would happen.
Remember, even though the Tab shipping now is stock honeycomb, Samsung plans on shipping future devices with their Touchwiz UI, as well as offering it to existing customers via an optionalover the air download at a future date. Since this is a promotional video for the “final” product, featuring Touchwiz made the most sense because it meant they only had to make one film instead of two. In fact, the description from the video’s YouTube page says as much:
The official info clip for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 WiFi. The tab used in this video is 3G version and may differ from the Galaxy Tab 10.1 sold in the U.S., and some of the features and services highlighted in the video will be available through software upgrade in the U.S.
We’ve received no word from Samsung that Touchwiz was being pushed out to tablets yet, and devices purchased in NYC last week are still running the stock honeycomb they were shipped with.
Be sure to keep an eye on our forums as Android Central readers nationwide pick up their pre-orders and start posting feedback. In the meantime, crank your speakers to 11 and enjoy the video.
