The Galaxy Tab 10.1 will have a software update shortly that will bring, among a host of new features, an updated TouchWiz interface that is optimized for Honeycomb. This installment of TouchWiz will have a live panel consisting of constantly updated widgets, a mini apps tray for commonly used applications (remember Samsung’s patent fight with Apple on this feature?), an advance clipboard to store photos, web pages and youtube links etc. when copied, and an indicator quick panel quickly toggle between Wi-Fi and notifications on/off, and sound, brightness and settings.
