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.
Details behind the hack arenâ€™t known but Sera-Apps did post up an image showing the Galaxy Tab and its Superuser Notification:
Itâ€™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 ROMâ€™s and feature hacks, we wonder if Samsung will look to actively lock this baby down before it goes on sale.
