Just when you thought that the Samsung Galaxy Note or its successor were the largest phones ever put in your pocket, think again. Some enterprising folks over at XDA Developers have decided to make sure your pockets are ripped to a larger size than ever before, thanks to the introduction of voice calling capability in the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. Granted, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 is not the newest tablet in the market, and neither does it fall under the phablet category, but there is nothing quite like a little bit of tweaking on the software front to open up new frontiers never imagined before.
Just as how there are many roads to Rome, there are also several installation methods where you can choose from, with each of these being based on a different ROM. As long as your Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 runs on the newest stock Ice Cream Sandwich ROM and derivatives, CyanogenMod9, or CyanogenMod 10, you’re good to go. There are some issues though, although these were reported not to happen too often, that is, it is best to run on 2G in order to enjoy hassle-free calls. Restrictions are also in place, since this mod applies only for folks who own the 3G-enabled Galaxy Tab 10.1, otherwise known as the GT-P7500.
