Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 4G LTE EL01 Update is Ready, TouchWiz for Tablets has Arrived on Verizon

If you own a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 with 4G LTE on Verizon, you should have a pretty major update available to you any day now. The update is version EL01 and includes TouchWiz for tablets along with a ton of other fixes and improvements. The document above (click to enlarge) will walk you through all of the major changes such as the mini apps tray, quick panel, and social hub widget. If stock Honeycomb was becoming a bore, this should give you some much needed spice.

The update itself is 351MB in size, so be sure you are in a strong LTE area or on WiFi before attempting to download.

More details after the break.  

More info.

    “TouchWiz”?

    It’s like Samsung has no concept of innuendo.

    And here I was wanting ICS for my 10.1.  It’s like asking for a cool gift and getting coal.  Thanks Samsung/Verizon, Merry Christmas to all.

     I don’t get why HTC, Motorola, and Samsung all feel like they need to re-skin something Google spent months perfecting…

    Does anyone know that Tab 10.1 WiFi Only will have similar updates also?

    • Derek Ross

      It already had this TouchWiz update.

    So the mainstream people out there that are not in the “know” are already used to stock honeycomb. Now they have to get used to something different and will become frustrated because things will not be the way they have been. So I don’t EVER want to hear anyone say that if a company offers stock in order to update quicker that that would frustrate the mainstream people because it is not what they are used to. This is an update away from stock Android and that is what people are used to using on this device. Not to mention it’s pretty much 2012 and they are just now getting 3.2 on this tablet. Wonder why it took so long? This update took longer to get to this device simply bc they had to optimize touchwiz into it on top of that it was a change from what mianstreamers are used to. This is why I get frustrated that our devices have to wait to get updated to current Android builds. So I don’t want to hear they can’t offer it to people who want it early. But they can also make their own skinned version that would come out after the stock for those who would rather have the skinned version, aka the mainstream people. Does that all make sense?

    This 315 MB OTA update will reach your device soon. After getting notification start download. but before starting the process be sure  that battery of your device is adequately charged and you are in a strong Wi-Fi networks area……

    Ive had this running on my 10.1 for over 2 weeks now. Its not to bad, i do like the built in task killer and the rom killer. But you cant change the items on the dock. that kind of sucks.

    The Daily? Really? Is this app a part of Touch Wiz?

  • Granted

    Yeah I’ve had this on my WIFI Galaxy Tab and I quite like it. I’m hoping for some more new updates though in the future, and it would be awesome to have ICS on it, haha.

      The update to 3.2 was nice. Would definitely love to see some ICS. Being the GN is Samsung, the Samsung tab 10.1 should definitely be first to run ICS. Basically the same specs as the GN.

        Not going to happen. The XOOM or TPrime will be the first to run ICS. GTab will get it eventually but the Google device and first quad core will get it first.

  • Lmrojas

    Download this if you want your tablet to become laggy.

  • Nakouro28

    I’ve had Touchwiz on my WIFI version for months now.  Not bad if you change a lot of stuff around, widgets, launchers etc. Took Verizon forever, as it usually does…

        I have and do – on my wife’s phone. Cartoonish icons, counterintuitive UI, trying to rip off iOS, no thanks. 

        And I’ve used it on tablets too – better, but completely unnecessary – as any other skinned Android UI

      • Ben Fuld

        I did try it. Yuck.

      • Lmrojas

        I just sold my wifi Tab 10.1 . I can not describe how much touch wiz made my tablet lag. Complete garbage.

        I used it on a couple devices. “Worst overlay ever”

          That belongs to LG.  TouchWiz UX is a mammoth improvement to stock Honeycomb.

      • Evan Knofsky

        I have it on my Galaxy Tab 10.1 it sucks.

        in strange twist of events, i’ve ended up with 2 wifi 10.1 tabs.  One came with touchwiz and the other was on stock honeycomb.  Touchwiz is an improvement in this case.

      I hate it too :(

      Who puts a screen shot button in a high traffic button area!? I keep hitting it by accident!

      • Paul Bolton

        I totally agree I have it with Touchwiz and hit the screen capture all the time
