In our Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 review, we played around with the Android 3.0 Honeycomb operating system, but here is news for you – the model which ships to the US will feature Android 3.1 Honeycomb upon its release Stateside, at least according to Samsung’s Facebook page. How do you know that this is true? Just check out the product information page on its US website to have those question marks dispelled. Not only that, Samsung will also enhance the Galaxy Tab experience by throwing in the latest version of Samsung’s TouchWiz customization with L!vepanel.

The Galaxy Tab 10.1 is actually a modified version of the prototype that Samsung showed off earlier this year in order to go up against the Apple iPad 2, where it is even thinner than the original iPad at 10.9mm (not to mention the iPad 2, too). As for those who picked up the Limited Edition Galaxy Tab 10.1 will be able to get hold of the Android 3.1 Honeycomb update in the coming weeks.

Which do you think will win in the tablet war this time around? Will Samsung be able to put up a decent challenge to the seemingly undefeatable iPad 2?
