Samsung has started rolling out an update for the Galaxy Tab 10.1, offering a host of features aimed at boosting performance and enterprise functionality.
Business-centric enhancements include full support for Exchange Active Sync 14, Cisco VPN and WebEx clients as well as on-device encryption. The Tab 10.1 will also cater for wireless printing, much like the iPad 2.
The FindMyMobile feature follows in the footsteps of Apple's MobileMe and RIM's BlackBerry Protect services by protecting data. This allows the Tab 10.1 to be tracked, remotely locked and wiped if it is lost or stolen.
The Tab 10.1 features a tablet-optimised version of Swype to aid text input, and the keyboard can be resized and moved anywhere on the screen.
Samsung has also boosted copy and paste functionality to improve productivity, allowing photos, web pages and links to be placed on the clipboard.
In terms of visual improvements, the Tab 10.1 features larger widgets, known as Live Panels. These offer news, weather, social networking and multimedia updates, and are customisable and resizable.
Samsung has also introduced mini-apps in an attempt to offer multi-tasking. These allow users to open and control features such as the Task Manager, Calendar, World Clock and Pen Memo without having to switch out of the current task.
Additionally, Samsung has updated its Kies mobile software to provide better device management, and there is a Media Hub to address all multimedia needs.
The Korean firm said that there are over 5,000 movies and TV shows available to download, which can be played on up to five devices or streamed wirelessly to an HD TV.
The TouchWiz update is available over the air, and Tab 10.1 owners will receive a notification when it is ready to download.
