Samsung’s newest UI, TouchWiz UX for Android, that specifically made for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is out. According to Slashgear, “what TouchWiz amounts to is a custom user interface that sits on top of and beside Android 3.1 Honeycomb, working to improve the way you work with Android and your tablet in general as well as opening your pathway to Samsung’s new movie collection interface and ability to work with Mini Apps on top of your everyday full-screen apps and home screens”.
