Verizon Wireless is preparing a software update for its Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet made by Samsung with embedded 4G LTE wireless broadband. The update is expected to hit at any time now and will bring a number of enhancements to the lightweight slate along with Samsung’s proprietary TouchWiz user interface overlay on top of the tab. According to obtained update documentation by Android Police, the update will bring a new Social Hub widget, a photo editor that’s built-in, a special news app that aggregates print and web content, Bluetooth 3.0 compatibility, DivX support, and an industry standard VPN client.
