The Android 4.1, JellyBean update source code for the AT&T variant of the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 has been uploaded by Samsung this week.

The company normally makes these codes available to developers just before the launch of a device. They use it to create new applications and programs for the software.

Samsung also released the source codes for the Galaxy Note 2 and the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0.

AT&T announced that it would be officially launching the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 on Nov. 9 this week.

The carrier will offer the tablet for $499.99. There will also be a special promotion on the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 and Samsung ATIV smart PC as AT&T will give customers purchasing a new Galaxy smartphone with a 2-year agreement $100 off those devices.

The Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 runs Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich and features on-device encryption and VPN access to ensure the tablet is efficient for business.

"Customers purchasing tablets from AT&T have more options in choosing the plan that's right for them and their mobile devices," said the carrier in a press release. "With new AT&T Mobile Share plans, new and existing customers can share a single bucket of data across smartphones, tablets and other compatible devices."

The Samsung ATIV smart PC runs the new Windows 8 software and can be upgrade to Windows 8 Pro.

It also features an 11.6-inch HD PLS display, 64GB of internal storage memory, a microSD slot, and the 1.5GHz Intel Atom dual-core processor.

"We are excited to offer the Samsung ATIV smart PC in stores nationwide ahead of the holiday shopping season," said Chris Penrose, senior vice president of AT&T Emerging Devices. "Connected by the nation's largest 4G network this Windows 8 tablet gives customers optimized touch interface, instant live tile updates and PC capabilities."
