Not only has the device launched, its also been rooted. Yes, you read that right. A group of Android developers, based in Germany managed to get their hands on a prototype Galaxy Tab, a month before it goes on general European sale, successfully rooting the device.
F**k it, we'll do it live!

Details behind the hack aren’t known but Sera-Apps did post up an image showing the Galaxy Tab and its Superuser Notification:
It’s likely the prototype was running a prototype Android build and certain bugs/holes will be patched before release. Root access can bring with it custom ROM’s and feature hacks, we wonder if Samsung will look to actively lock this baby down before it goes on sale.
