Meant to post yesterday:

Anyone with a Sprint Tab notice
whether or not they have this icon/app on their tab?

On the Sprint page it does state:

"Samsung Social Hub integrates all of the user’s social
networking services, messages, personal and business email, calendars and contacts, and can display calendar information from portal calendars, such as Google Calendar, and social networking services together in one view with two-way synchronization"

i contacted Sprint Tech Support and the 1st rep tried sending the app to me, which i think was BS. Then i was put through to Level 2 Tech Support. Level 2 had me do a hard reset and planned for the Tab to take an auto update and hand me the app, which it did NOT. I was then told to go to a Sprint Store because this is a manufacture issue and they will swap out the device.

PS: Tab is 2 hours old


Today i decided to contact Samsung Tech Support regarding this issue. 1st rep advised me to take my equipment back to where i purchased it for a replacement. I asked to speak to a supervisor and spoke with a "Level 2 Tech". He advised me that BOTH the Sprint and Verizon CDMA units do not have this app/feature at this time and expects a possible upgrade in the near future.

Tonight, not satisfied with the conflicting date i have received, i again contacted: a) a sprint corporate store and b) care tech support. The ditz i spoke to at the store advised me, without looking, that their demo unit did not have this application and would not let me speak to someone in tech & repairs. Called Care Tech Support again and explained the conflicts i have received the last 2 days and she proceded to contact Samsung, put me on hold and CLICK...

Still trying to find out if ANY CDMA UNITS HAVE THIS APP OR NOT...

Media Hub is the only one of the "hubs" on my VZW unit. As far as I know, none are in the American market. I've heard you can find the .apk for the Reader Hub, but I wasn't really interested.

Same goes for the Samusung App Store, it's not installed on VZW.

Short answer: no it is not included, and apparently won't be in America.

Longer answer: Maybe they will include it some day, or maybe you can find it online somewhere like many users do with closed beta keyboard software for their phones.
samusung social hub integrate all the users social networking services, messages, email,
calender and contacts and display information from calenders such as google calenders and social networking services in one view with 2-way synchronization.
