If you picked up the recently released Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, then there's a good chance that you want some accessories to go along with it. Right now, if you use the coupon code GOOGLEIO2011 at Sammy's official online store, then you'll score a cool 30% off of all accessories. There is a catch, though - 60% of the currently released accessories are out of stock at the moment. However, if you're in the market to grab the stylus, vehicle charger, travel charger, or data cable - then you're in luck, as those are the only items currently in stock.

P3Droid of MyDroidWorld has scored an early (debug) Gingerbread build for the Samsung Fascinate, and it's apparently quite polished. So far P3 and Justin (of AndIRC) are the only two to have laid hands on the build, but the issues they have found are that Tetris force closes, Google Maps isn't pre-installed, and some market apps don't show. Otherwise, they say it's a very solid build. P3 has provided a quick (37 second) video preview:

Justin was also kind enough to snap a few quick photos:

It looks like Sammy has been working hard to bring Gingerbread to all of the Galaxy S devices, as an official build for the Epic 4G leaked over at SamFirmware this morning. Much like the recent Captivate Gingerbread leak, this is an early build, but judging by current reports, it seems to be pretty solid.

Just like this leak, you must flash this via Odin. Here's a quick example of the process:

If you're ready to give it a shot, head over to XDA for download.

captivate

Don't feel like waiting for Samsung and AT&T to get around to officially rolling out a Gingerbread update for the Captivate? Thanks to SamFirmware, you don't have to; you can flash an early build of the update now, provided that you're comfortable with running leaked and likely somewhat buggy firmware.

SamFirmware actually has two such leaks, the first (I897UCKE3) dated May 26th and the second (I897UCKF1) having a build date of June 8th.

While the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 has a slew of positive features, that doesn't void it of its shortcomings. Among those downfalls is the lack of a dedicated USB port, which seems to be a big deal with a lot of people. Never fear, though - Samsung has come to the rescue with a USB adapter so you can take full advantage of the USB host support in Android 3.1. The USB adapter plugs into the Tab's proprietary 30-pin connecter, so it will add a bit of bulk to the supermodel-slim tablet.

CrunchGear is reporting that the Italian site HDblog has received exclusive details on Samsung's least-publicized new tablet product: the Galaxy Tab Seven (aka, the Galaxy Tab 2). The Seven will be the successor to the wildly unpopular Galaxy Tab, which debuted last fall to almost universally poor reviews (though our own Aaron Gingrich thoroughly enjoyed it). The Galaxy Tab was the first major-manufacturer Android tablet, and it seems based on the new tablet's specifications, Samsung learned a lot from the Tab's less-than-successful run.

Owners of the Samsung Fascinate on Verizon should be getting prompted to install an OTA update pretty soon - but it's just a maintenance update with a couple of bug fixes. When I say a couple, I mean it in the most literal of ways - it fixes two things. The two things in question? It improves the delivery of over-the-air updates and incoming call connectivity. That's it. I do find it ironic that they're sending out an OTA update to improve OTA updates, though.

samsung-gt-i9000

The guys over at Samfirmware have gotten their hands on an official build of Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread for the European variant of the Samsung Galaxy S GT-i9000. The build date on this is June 3rd, so it's relatively new - but there's no word on whether this is a finalized build or not.

This firmware is for the European Samsung Galaxy S GT-i9000 ONLY. If you attempt to flash this on any other device, the result will most likely be irreparable.

This update brings a gaggle of nice features, including widget resizing, USB host support, and improved multitasking, just to name a few.

Update #1: In addition to the standard 3.1 stuff, Samsung provides the following list (and warns to disable any device locks prior to the update specifically for the I/O Tab):

KF3 (Google IO):

Core update from Honeycomb 3.0 to 3.1.

This is for rooted devices only.

If you own a Samsung Galaxy S 4G or Galaxy Tab 10.1 I/O edition, some good news came out of the ClockwordMod camp today: both of the aforementioned devices are now officially supported by ROM Manager.

This will make flashing recoveries and .zips, performing backups, and finding new ROMs easier than ever before - so head over the Android Market and get your download on.
