Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

The launch of Google’s Android 3.1 Honeycomb OS which was launched during the Google I/O 2011 developer conference has been delayed in most countries including the UK, according to well trusted sources. We wouldn’t be considering tweet from anybody else about this subject, but it has just come from the reputed Russian blogger and editor of, Eldar Murtazin, who’s had a good track record about bringing the inside info through his contacts. He also added that the launch of Android 3.1 Honeycomb powered tablets like Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 (slated for June 8th release) and Galaxy Tab 8.9 has been delayed until August in the Europe.

Eldar Tweet about Android 3.1 delay

The cause of the delay is reportedly due to a serious bug in the Android 3.1 Honeycomb OS which was discovered in the last minute. With Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, Galaxy Tab 8.9 and other tablets like Toshiba Thrive (releasing in Mid-July) just on the verge of launch with Android 3.1, it’s unclear whether this will have any affect on the buyers of these tablets located in the US. Well if you are in Europe it’s unlikely that you could buy these tablets until Q3 2011. We are waiting for some official information about the delay and will keep you posted.
