I’ve returned from the Rumour Mill with a bag of salt and this news. The first part of the rumour is that Optus will stock the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in the near future. Our source said this has been confirmed inside of Optus, but we’re lacking details to call it confirmed ourselves. There’s nothing stopping Optus from stocking the Galaxy Tab 10.1 as Vodafone never announced it as an exclusive to their network, like they did with the 10.1v. We’ll see if anymore news comes through the wires.

The second part of the rumour is that Motorola are trying to get rid of the Motorola XOOM. Our source told us Motorola are telling Telstra and Optus to sell them while they can because as soon as the Galaxy Tab 10.1 comes out they’ll have no advantage over it. So Optus will need to sell a majority of their existing XOOM’s before they, and Vodafone, stock the 10.1. Interesting stuff.

As a xoom owner its not too bad… Little heavy but now that 3.1 has dropped to it its nice and snappy…… Why xoom? Needed 3g and while I like the 10.1v I knew Sammy was going to forget it the day it shipped. (how’s the lack of updates working out for you buzz?) That said. The 10.1 won’t be forgotten in a while by Sammy or the dev community. So go for that! Infact I’m thinking of selling the xoom and getting a 10.1 or a mediapad. 7″ is a great size to carry around and slip into the… Read more »
