The new Galaxy Tab 8.9 and Galaxy Tab 10.1 will feature Samsung's new TouchWiz UX user interface for tablets. The UI will not come on the Android Honeycomb tablet right out of the box, rather it will be made available after launch as a software update.

TouchWiz UX features live panels, which you can customize with different content such as weather, calendar, and e-mail.

To add live widgets and content to the home screen, you can drag and drop on the first instance.

After you've added your first widget, you can just tap and touch instead of dragging and dropping.

One nice thing about TouchWiz UX is that you can resize the widgets.

It's a simple process of dragging the widget box to the size that you want.

Another feature of the TouchWiz UX is an app tray that gives you access to more commonly used apps. The goal is to easy multitasking.

While you're working on other things, you can simply drag an app from the tray to the main screen for easier multitasking.

One feature we particularly found handy was the wireless manager. By pressing a little icon on the bottom right-hand side, you can easily toggle on/off your wireless radios, adjust screen brightness, check battery life, and more.
